Matthiasson Refosco
Description: Our Refosco is always defined by its balance between fruitiness and earthiness, and its full soft tannins. A happy wine, it is one of our favorites to drink at home. Refosco Nostrano originates in the Friuli region of Italy and Slovenia. While most Refosco in the U.S. is misnamed, and is actually Mondeuse noire, true Refosco budwood was imported from Italy and officially released in the late 90s. We have one of the only plantings in California. An ancient grape, Refosco was first mentioned in print in 1409 at a banquet for Pope Gregory XII. It is distantly related to Syrah and Pinot noir.
