The Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso is a red wine made from a native grape of the north east of Italy, particularly Friuli and Veneto famous for its tannins that soften with ageing.
This The Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso has an intense and clean nose showing aromas of blackberry and blueberry and it is slightly herbaceous, full and round in the mouth, with an extra kick of acidity and a bitterly palate. It has a lasting aftertaste.
The artisan who made it
Roberto Scubla is an amazing person who is very passionate about his wines. He took a big risk and left a safe job in the bank for an uncertain future amongst the vines and he has truly succeeded in what he was trying to achieve. His winery and vineyards are located in the Colli Orientali area of Friuli, north east of Italy, near the Slovenian border, where he grows native grapes like the Friulano and Verduzzo but also grapes that have found an ideal environment in Friuli such as the Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon or the Sauvignon and all his wines have plenty of character and elegance.
