Alturio Refosco

Friuli Aquileia DOC

Origin

Friuli Aquileia DOC.

Grapes

100% Refosco dal Peduncolo rosso.

Type of Soil

At the Ca’ Bolani estate in the Aquileia DOC zone of Friuli, the soils (called “magredis”), thanks to their alluvial origins, have a similar structure to that of the terrain in the area of Bordeaux: a mixture of sand and clay with layers of gravel. They therefore have an excellent ability to retain and then release to the vines those mineral elements that they require in order to thrive.

Training System

Double Guyot.

Plant Density

5,500 vines per hectare (2,225 per acre). On average, the vines are ten years old.

Yield

45 quintals of grapes per hectare.

Vinification and Maturation

The grapes were harvested by hand and carefully selected prior to being placed in traditional vinification tanks, where fermentation took place, as well as maceration on the skins for 15 days. The wine matured for 12 months in Allier oak barriques, followed by at least a further 6 months’ bottle aging.

Colour

Intense ruby red with garnet reflections

Alcohol Level

13.5% vol.
