Refosco Riserva Aquila del Torre 2016

Aquila del Torre

Aquila del Torre's Refosco Riserva is a very intense, full-bodied and spicy red wine that comes from the marly and clayey soils of the Friuli hills. It piques the nose with hints of ripe red fruit, ground spices and hints of cocoa and coffee. The taste is soft, full-bodied and austere, wrapped in a fine tannic texture

Refosco Riserva is a red wine that presents itself with a calling card in which spices play the role of the undisputed protagonists during the tasting. In fact, it is a wine that moves between nose and mouth telling us about the charm of distant lands through eastern scents and flavors, while being deeply linked to the terroir from which it comes, that of the legendary Colli del Friuli. A label that is made by the Aquila del Torre winery only in the best vintages, and which demonstrates, from the first encounter, its charismatic personality.

This Riserva originates from the grapes of a variety widely grown within the regional borders of Friuli Venezia Giulia, Refosco. The vines of this variety are more than 20 years old, and are situated at an altitude of between 175 and 350 meters above sea level, in vineyards with a hilly profile characterized by a marly, clayey subsoil. The must ferments spontaneously thanks to the presence of indigenous yeasts in French oak vats, performing a long maceration on the skins. Malolactic fermentation is carried out in cement. Final aging is carried out in French oak barrels for about 12 months.

This Refosco Riserva announces itself to the eye with a ruby red color, crossed by flashes that tend more toward garnet in the rim. Rich and layered the nose, where intense aromas alternate, telling spicy notes and oriental, enhanced by touches of ripe fruit and toasted wood. On the palate it is full-bodied, ample and swaddling on the palate, with a sip marked by a tannin with a nice presence, which lengthens the finish. An artisanal gem signed by the Aquila del Torre winery not to be missed for anything in the world!
