2010 Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso (Albano, Guerra)
Guerra Albano, Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso, Colli Orientali del Friuli, Italy 2010100% Refosco DARK BERRIES, CHOCOLATE & SPICE, BALANCED & RICH Legend has it that Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso (Refosco with red stems) has been grown since the time of Pliny the Elder, who highly praised it (or something similar to it) 2,000 years ago! We praise this modern take on the grape and its deep, dark purple color, rich black & blue berries, and accents of cocoa, vanilla, and spice. Grippy tannins and a long, balanced finish round out this stunner. The Albano family have been making wine for generations but have only been bottling commercially for twenty-five years. Here's to another two thousand! Serving suggestion: Lasagna w/ ricotta cheese & wild mushrooms. Rosemary chicken thighs topped w/ besciamella, a sprinkling of nutmeg, & poppy seeds. Crispy fried Frico (wafers of grated cheese mixed with flour) & roasted beets.
