Villa di Asiola Refosco Dal Penducolo 1999

Member Review by envero:

Refosco from Italy's northeastern area of Friuli, is a grape variety which for me succeeds in reflecting the people, places and passion of the land where it is made. For an entry level wine almost a decade old the wine is bursting with colour, a rich purple and violet hue to the meniscus. It is inviting and fresh on the nose, herbaceous notes are married with a variety of spicy aromas and clear hints of berries. It is clean and fresh on the palate, with strong tannins still remaining, the hints of spice; cinnamon & nutmeg are warming and velvety, this gives way to bitter fruits, perhaps damsons or even sloe. The wine is balanced by some great acidity, its pleasantness on the palate and its remarkable bold taste.
