Ponte del Diavolo Refosco Grave del Friuli 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

The Ponte del Diavolo range takes its 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. The Refosco grapes for this wine are grown in vineyards in Grave del Friuli. The vineyards are situated close to Portogruaro, where the less vigorous soils and warmer climate results in riper grapes. This is key for Refosco, which has a high natural acidity. Youthful ruby red with good depth of colour and 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.
