This deeply coloured wine is robust and full-bodied with discernible tannin yet polished and supple with black fruit flavours and almond notes. It has a long and pleasant finish marked with notes of plums and currants.
Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso grape also gives the name to the wine.
This name derives in fact from the red stems that distinguish it from other Refosco varieties.
Literally, it translates as Refosco with the red stem (peduncolo rosso).
