Refosco dPR “Cate”
SOIL TYPE: Marl and sandstone flysch of Eocene origin.
WINEMAKING: The harvest is picked quite late and only best grapes are chosen for this wine. The selection is carried out both directly at the vineyard and in
the cellar. Fermentation and maceration on the skins are initially carried out together at controlled temperatures in stainless steel containers. After maceration the wine finishes fermentation in part new, part one-year old French oak barrels, where it rests for 12 months for the final
maturation. The bottled wine is aged in temperaturecontrolled
cellars for at least five more months.
