Refosco is an ancient family of dark skinned Italian grape varieties native to Northern Italy, Slovenia and Croatia. It is believed to have been enjoyed since Roman times. The most renowned sub variety is Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso from Friuli Venezia Giulia.

The grapes are harvested at the perfect degree of sugar and phenol content, then destemmed and crushed. The resulting must is then allowed to macerate and ferment on the skins in steel vats. During this period, pumping over is carried out frequently to favour the transfer of colour and noble tannins from the skins to the fermenting must. After the end of alcoholic and malolactic fermentation is awaited and the racking is carried out with the wine pouring under gravity into 2,500-litre French oak barrels in the cellar where it matures until the month of February when it is bottled.

The La Tunella Refosco is broad, rich, and intense, anchored by fruit and spice notes, wild blackberry, raspberry, cocoa, and tobacco. A full, dry body with substantial structure and a slightly bitter aftertaste. 
Best paired with rich meats, poultry and stews, with the exception of game in spiced sauces.

Have purchased twice in the last month. The quality of wine is excellent and the service is amazing. We are enjoying trying different regions and variety of wines from Italy. The Vermentino was brilliant! Well done Team.

The 12 bottles mystery box was great. I customised the order to have 10 white and 2 reds. The wine was great and reminded me of European wine. The delivery was also super fast. I ordered the wine on Saturday evening and it arrived Monday already.
