Castello di Buttrio Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso 2019 75cl
A richly fruited wine with succulent layers of spice and earthiness. Vibrant and characterful, with minerality and well-honed tannins that bring freshness.
Castello di Buttrio is located in Fruili Colli Orientali, and has been home to five generations of winemakers. In 1994, local legend Marco Felluga purchased the property and began the restoration of the castle and the historic vineyards, a project which is being carried on with dedication and determination by his daughter Alessandra and his granddaughters. Surrounding the castle, the vines cover 10 hectares and are immaculately laid out along the hillside amphitheatres, which frame the undulating hills. The estate comprises parcels of old vines, dating back to the 1930s, 1940s and the early 1950s, which are planted with indigenous varietals, representing the historical traditions of Fruili and the heritage of the estate. Blending tradition with innovation, Alessandra produces stunningly, modern and authentic wines which are exquisitely packaged and offer a taste of this spectacular estate.
