Intense red in colour, leaning towards ruby, with good structure. On the nose, it offers hints of herbs complemented by aromas of woodland fruits from the Refosco. On the palate, the wine is balanced with good length and supple tannins. Best enjoyed fresh upon release, even though it has good complexity and some weight from its passage in wood. The two vines, of which the Refosco is indigenous, represent an ideal marriage that demonstrates what our area does so well with red grapes; the renowned fruit of Merlot and the elegance of the “grand” Refosco make for a notable wine.
