Baccichetto Refosco Wine Italy
Refosco dal Preduncolo Rosso (Red Uncle of Refosco) has been cultivated in the northeast of Italy since ancient times, it is a sub variety of the Refosco grape and derives its name from the red vine stems. The grape was well known through the ages in Italy the Roman writer Pliny the Elder praised the wine produced from the Refosco grape. The vineyard is situated in the more southern part of the Friuli region, between the inlets of the River Stella in the village of Borgo Titiano near Precenicco. Vittorino Baccichetto founded the business with his wife Anita, and they passed down to their sons Paolo and Alessandro all the sense of duty and respect for their traditions: experience built up over time, hard work and healthy love for the land. During a shot stay in Lignano, Ernest Hemingway, accompanied by his friend and driver Adamo De Simon, stopped in the laoca; village of Borgo Titiano, where he became inebriated by the good wine and while he was contemplating he decided to leave this declaration to the Baccichetto family: Wine is one of the most civilised things in the world and one of the most natural things of the world that has been brought to the greatest perfection. Aromas of chocolate covered currants and plums with a follow through to a round fruity medium body with excellent depth and vibrancy. Finishes with a long, tangy raspberry and spice fade.
