Refosco

DGT Venezia Giulia

  • Historical background

    Already renowned in antiquity, it celebrated Pope Gregory XII in 1409 in Cividale and the noble caste during the military games in 1762. During the first Oenological Congress in 1891, it was distinguished into 3 categories: ‘red-petal’, ‘green-petal’ and ‘Terrano d’Istria’.
  • The grape

    The Refosco bunch, being very long, tends to exert too much weight causing the rachis to dry out. It is therefore necessary to cut all the bunches in half.

The vineyard

Both Peduncolo Rosso and Faedis, are planted in our Bottaz IGT VENEZIA GIULIA vineyard, providing more complexity to the wine.
