Intense ruby red in colour, unique softness on the palate. These qualities, along with the knowledge that the wine has no preservatives, make it an exhilarating delight to drink. It’s aromas and flavours change over time. When it is young, ripe fruit dominates with the Refosco’s typical overtones of blackberries and blueberries. As it ages, Cabernet’s force comes through with its grassy tones, which joins the light toasty flavour from the oak barrel, resulting in inimitable overtones.
