Parentage of the grape: Refosco is actually a group of interrelated but distinct grape varieties. Most of these are related to the Slovenian grape Refosk; the one with the best reputation is Friuli’s Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso.

  • Adesso Cagnina di Romagna 2012

    Snoothrank:

    I love this wine. For those who prefer sweet wines this is a great choice. Typically choices for sweets are Moscatos or Rieslings, and the reds are usually very sweet & fall in the category of dessert wines. This has just a touch of sweetness & goes perfect with a great steak dinner. Read More

  • Ronchi di Cialla Refosco Dal Peduncolo Rosso Colli Orientali del Friuli 2008

    Snoothrank:

    This bottling explodes with aromas of pomegranate, rhubarb, savory notes and dried lavender. It is joyfully youthful, pleasingly medium-bodied and quite lengthy on the finish. The tannins are slightly edgy. Drink now through 2016, though theres no reason to wait. Read More
