Russolo, Refosco, Friuli Grave 2009
A good, rather gentle introduction to Refosco. Raspberry and black cherry fruit aromas and flavours dominate, but there are also notes of warm leather and old books which lend this wine more interest. For the money this represents very good value. Clean, dry, fresh, medium- bodied – friendly yet firm. 16.5/20pts (88/100pts)
