Refosco – DOC Friuli Colli Orientali
Refosco has an ancient history. It was first documented in 1347 in the annals of the Municipality of Udine, where it is described, together with ribolla gialla, as one of the most highly prized and costly varieties. In fact, it would be more accurate to talk about a family of varieties, the refoscos.
At Castello di Buttrio, our refosco is the variety known as “dal peduncolo rosso” and takes its name from its distinctive purple-red peduncle, the bunchstem that attaches the cluster to the vine.
Refosco’s richly fruited wine is close-textured and full bodied with succulent layers of spice and earthiness. A wine whose chewy mouthfeel is braced by bright minerality.
