Ponte del Diavolo Refosco del Friuli 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

These wines are made on the well drained soils of Grave del Friuli, and are fuller than those from Verona. The Ponte del Diavolo wines take their name from the spectacular medieval bridge in nearby Cividale. The story goes that the devil struck a bargain with the townspeople, promising to make them a bridge in return for the soul of the first living thing to cross it. The cunning citizens sent a dog or cat across, depending on the variation of the story, thereby saving themselves and gaining a wonderful bridge. This wine has good depth of ruby red with youthful violet lights, the Refosco has a spicy, brambley perfume on the nose giving way to rounded ripe fruit on the palate. Refosco produces rich, rounded wines, with enough structure to support the juicy, blackberry fruit character.
