Refosco is an ancient autochthonous red wine from Friuli Venezia Giulia which owes its name to the particular shade of red present in the pedicel, i.e. the element that binds the grape to the stem. The Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso vine of Tenuta Luisa is located in the territory of Mariano del Friuli. Refosco is obtained thanks to a fermentation with the skins which lasts from 10 to 12 days. Part of the fermentation result is left to rest for 10 months on noble grapes, while the other part is left to rest for the same period in wooden barrels. To complete the production, the two parts are joined and left to refine for 4 months in the bottle.
This wine is characterized by a dark red color and an intense aroma, which brings to mind wild berries. On the palate it is recognizable by the decisive and pleasantly bitter taste it leaves.
Refosco Isonzo is excellent served with meat and aged cheeses.
