If you are looking for a wine with a rich history and a distinctive character, you might want to try Refosco dal Penduncolo Rosso, a native grape variety from the Friuli region of Italy. This grape has been cultivated since ancient times and was praised by the Roman naturalist Pliny the Elder for its quality and health benefits. Refosco dal Penduncolo Rosso means “red-stemmed Refosco”, and it is one of the many varieties of Refosco grapes that grow in Italy and neighbouring countries.
Refosco dal Penduncolo Rosso produces a deep ruby red wine, reflecting its intensity and complexity. The aroma is a symphony of black cherry, violet, and earthy notes, while the taste is elegant and balanced, with a lively acidity that cuts through the richness of the wine. This wine is perfect for pairing with fatty meats, such as roast pork, bacon, or soppressa, a typical Friulian salami. Refosco dal Penduncolo Rosso is a wine that will surprise you with its personality and charm and will make you appreciate the diversity and richness of Italian wines.
