Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso – Castelvecchio – Red wine – DOC Carso 2018

13,50

Our Refosco di Castelvecchio has a very deep ruby ​​red color, with an ethereal, slightly vinous and full of character. It is produced from an ancient Friulian grape variety. The flavor is dry, full, full-bodied and slightly bitter. It is a clumsy wine that, like the ugly duckling, turns into a swan after three years of barrique and bottle aging. Roasts and game were particularly enhanced by this wine which also goes well with other robust dishes typical of the Friulian cuisine.
