Refosco "Bottaz" Venica
“Refosco Bottaz” Venica&Venica is produced with 100% Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso. After the harvest, planned in the middle of October, and the soft pressing with the elimination of stalks, start maceration and the fermentation: 12 days in wood containers where is developed the malolactic fermentation too. Then the wine is poured in little barrels made of oak, where it continues its aging for 19 months. After the assembly of the barriques starts the bottling. The maturation in the bottle last a year, but it can mature even more to reach the perfect moment to drink it.
