Pucino, Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso, Friuli Colli Orientali 2011
Unoaked, simple but sensitively made Refosco. Fresh and fruity on nose and palate. Deliciously gripping tannins, not too high, but certainly present, uplifting acidity. Serve slightly chilled with a hearty lunch. 16.5/20pts (88/100pts)
