Description

La Roncaia Refosco 2014

Radiant in its deep garnet red tinged with ruby, perfumed of soft fruits, showing a big palate. Refosco is a great Friulian wine made from the finest grapes of the native Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso. Intense, complex, with earth scents recalling wild essences and wild berries, spicy and toasted fragrances, up to ethereal perfumes. On the palate, it is warm, velvety, tannic; a wine with a great body, intensity and tasting persistence.

After a late harvest, part of the grapes are carefully raisined for about 8 weeks. Vinification takes place in stainless steel tanks. The grapes, previously destemmed but not crushed, macerate from 25 to 30 days at controlled temperature. The wine is then transferred to new and once-used barriques for maturation with rackings every 90-100 days. For at least 24 months La Roncaia Refosco ages slowly in wood. After assembling the cuv├Ęe, the wine is bottled and ages in horizontal position for 6 months.
