Medium-bodied with plum and almond notes, this wine is made from the Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso grape. A bit of a mouthful maybe, and a variety grown mainly in the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region of North East Italy, so you may not have heard of it but its been grown there since Roman times, over 2,000 years. Refosco is indigenous to Italy but also grown in Slovenia and is slow ripening grape that has a good resistance to rot, which may explain the longevity of this variety.

You can match this lovely little wine with roasted anything – veggies, meat or game. 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.

Friuli Venezia Giulia

This region in the far north of Italy is historically a grape growing region with vines cultivated here since Roman times. This sunny region is naturally protected from cold northerly winds by the Alps and exposed to a mild ocean breeze from the Adriatic sea ensuring grapes do not over ripen and lose that all-important acidity.
