DOC FCO Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso

Indigenous vine of ancient origins, with intensely red grapes, highly acidic, slightly herbaceous.

The marl/clay soil in the hills result in an excellent full-bodied wine, which, when aged properly, take on a pleasantly bitter flavour and an ample tarry bouquet.
