Wine region: Slovenian Istria
Boris’s tip: Great strong and tipical red wine from Slovenian Istria. This one is with out added sulfit.
With spontaneous fermentation and uncontrolled temperatures, it was macerated for almost a month. After a slight distress, it was piled into an inox container, where he was on small branches until summer 2020, with no added sulfur.
Colour: Intensive ruby, black colour with purple shades.
Aroma: Reminiscent of blackberry, blueberry, and ripe sour cherry and beautifully intertwined with the gentle, ripe aroma of wood.
Taste: The wine is full and soft, which makes it pleasantly playful with fruity but non-aggressive acids. A beautiful and elegant wine with a medium long finish in which sour cherries and pleasant tannins are beautifully expressed.
Food and wine pairing recommendation: Refosco is a wine which is very welcome on tables with cold cured meat products, red meat, slaughter meat and grilled dishes, and due to its pleasant acids, also goes nicely with a pizza.
Serving temperature: 15-18°C
