2003 “Bordeaux blend” red wine from Venice with Refosco Peduncolo Rosso, Cabernet Franc and Merlot

Wine coming from DOC Lison Pramaggiore, the quality wine rising district in Venice with quality products that are sold worldwide. The Carline Rosso is the typical Bordeaux blend wine, but from local point of view: Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso (refosco with red footstalk), Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Grapes are carefully selected (maturity, integrity) because after the wine has to mellow for a long time in barrel. The Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso is a typical cultivar in Lison Pramaggiore DOC and in Friuli. Berry is of medium size, the skin is thick and tough black-blue. It’s harvested rather late, resistant, wine has a deep color, intense perfumes; taste fruity, slightly tannic, with almond aftertaste, good body. These features make the Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso suitable to quality wine making, such as Riserva, both alone or blended. According to Refosco’s fans, Carline Rosso is the Chianti of Venice, only the main wine changes: Refosco instead of Sangiovese.
