Ferretti Refosco is grown on soil that contain small amounts of iron which provides a distinctive flavour.
Ancient native variety of Friuli and very popular across the entire region. Garnet red in colour tending to violet. Concentrated aromas and pleasant hints of wild blackberries and undergrowth.
