When Palmina owners/winemakers Steve and Chrystal Clifton decided to get married, it was no surprise to anyone that the wedding would take place in Italy. And particularly in Friuli, in the northeastern part of the country. With family and friends gathered, they were presented at their reception with a "wedding wine", made by good friends Valter Scarbolo and Joe Bastianich. This very special wine was a blend of Refosco, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Chrystal and Steve decided a few years hence to recreate this wine in honor of the celebration and their union. Depth of color predominates, yet with rather mischievous glints of garnet peeking from the maroon/violet color of the wine. On the nose, vibrant and earthy notes of currant, plums, dried cherry and violets abound. Plush on the palate, Mattia refreshes and caresses with a yin-yang of liveliness and elegant, dusty tannins all beautifully integrated and layered with fruit notes of black cherry, dark plum, pomegranate and blackberry, intermingled with a hint of cedar, a wisp of truffle and a suggestion of black tea-like tannins. A food wine bar none.
