Produced in relatively small quantities, this wine was originally a limited edition for WiR, but it sold so quickly we’ve made it a regular.

Match with roasted anything… veggies, meat or game.

Description

In Roman times, the intensity of the aroma and ruby red colour of this wine perfectly matched the atmosphere inside the Colosseum as gladiators fought and free citizens quite possibly swigged Refosco. Famously, it was also the favourite tipple of Emperor Augustus’ wife Livia. Full-bodied with plum and almond notes, Refosco has been produced in North East Italy for over 2,000 years, and you can match it with roasted anything – veggies, meat or game.

    “Is this French?” my son asked. No it isn’t but I completely understand why he asked. If there is a typical ‘Italian’ taste I don’t think this wine has it but that isn’t a critisism in the slightest, this is a damn fine wine. Up ’till trying this Refosco my favourite BIB was a Southern French Cab Sav / Syrah but I think I have a new favourite in this Refosco.
    The wine is a deep ruby red with the faintest hint of purple, taste includes ripe plums & raspberies (but I don’t get the suggested almonds), there’s medium tanin with a medium to long finish. The wine is great before, with, and after food, basically a lovely moreish red! Hopefully there’ll be a box left when I come to re-order.
