The wine making process starts with 25 days maceration followed by 12 days fermentation. The aging is managed in oak barrels for 18/24 months and the evolution continues in the bottles for further 2 years.
Charatteristics of the Refosco DOC wine produced by Luisa Winery
Garnet red colour with intense violet shades. Its perfume is full and pleasant and recalls wild blackberry and undergrowth. The taste is savoury and bitter, where the presence of tannins can be perceived. Good persistence and great final. With the right aging in the bottle, it becomes gentler and more elegant. It joins perfectly the features of the variety with a strong regional identity.
