Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso

Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso D.O.C. V.Q.P.R.D. Colli Orientali del friuli 2003
Vine: Local wine 100% Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso
Place of growing: In our own vineyards
Production Hectares: Ha 0.55.00 in high hill
Harvest: On 20th October, only by hand
Wine-making: As it happens for each red grape, by inoculating selected yeasts and enzymes that, together with enologic techniques and modern equipments, allow to work grapes and musts without affecting the characteristics of this grape. Using truncated cone and both hot and cold temperature controlled tanks permits to control the fermentation
Fermentation: Maceration on the grapes occurs at a controlled temperature of 28°C for about 18 days in order to obtain a good extraction of the colour and to keep a good structure able to maintain for a long time. When the liquid part separates itself from the solid one, the must is kept in steel tanks for some days for the cleaning. The wine is now put directly in 300 litre barrels where it stays for 18 months; during this period the malolactic fermentation occurs. The wine contained in each barrel is put in an unique mass before bottling
Alcholic content:
13,50 % vol
Total Acidity: 5,50 gr/lt.
Refining: The wine was bottled on 2007 October and it has been kept in the bottles for some months for a further refining. It is a promising wine not only due to its great complexity but also for its longevity
Features: It has a bright violet ruby red; at the nose it is unmistakeable the scent of tart with small fruits, liquorice and leather which can be recognised also in the mouth where it opens imposing but balanced and rich; the final is long and pleasant
Service temperature & food matching: The most pleasant sensations are perceived if it is served at 18°C after opening the bottle in advance. It should be matched with game, but also with roasts
