Ciani Refosco dal Peduncolo rosso 2005, D.O.C. Grave del Friuli. **HERITAGE WINE**
light purple red.
Nose: quite expressive, fresh, with lots of young, rustic and a bit gamy fruit (berries, cherries), spices, some impressions of tea, smoke and damp earth. Clean attractive, not refined or complex.
Taste: fresh acidity, medium body, very smooth tannins, lots of juiciness, ripe fruit, a tiny suggestion of sweetness, soft and elegant, a touch of smoke, a hint of gaminess, mild and supple with clear and specific, attractive and intriguing character.
Finish: medium long, fresh, supple and smooth, with some rustic tannins providing tension and giving a nice balancing twist, very fruity, spicy and a mild touch of sweetish bitterness. Very honest and straight wine.
* A very honest and
straight wine, very smooth, soft and fresh, very fruity, earthy and
spicy, with a specific aromatic, a slight rustic twist providing both
character and tension to this easy drinking wine.
- Drink this wine from now on, it might be kept for a year or so, but I have serious doubts about the longevity of this wine as it is so smooth and supple. Drink at least before 2008.
- This wine is produced
from 100% Refosco grapes. The full name: Refosco dal Peduncolo rosso
(the Refosco with red stems/stalks). It seems the Mondeuse Noire from
the French Arbois region is the same grape, producing a somewhat rustic
red wine with "sauvage" fruity aroma's. A fresh and supple
character can be very attractive with those aromatics. This wine has a
strong own character that is worth protecting and conserving.
