Ruby red colour, full and fragrant bouquet with wild berries, roses and tobacco. Haromious body, full-flavoured with hints of amarena cherry, caracterized by aromatic quality of Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso.
ROSSO “REVISUS” DOC FCO
It is a “ripasso” wine: Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon aged in wooden barrels and then fermented on slightly dried Refosco grape skins, still rich in sugars and tannins. Pleasant and not demanding.
