Think of Refosco as Friuli's answer to Syrah or Malbec, dark and full but with extra aromatic complexity.
Native to the Friuli region in Northeastern Italy, the unique Refosco grape produces a rich, dark wine that is full bodied with deep plum flavors and a round texture underscored by notes of earth and licorice. Grown in warmer California climates it is textured with soft acid yet full of dark flavor and subtle pepper and spice with a lingering finish. We keep ours low in oak to maintain the delicate varietal nuance.
