Fleshy yet delicate as a flower, it possesses a unique sensuality. It offers velvety sensations of black berry fruits along with sweeter notes of cherries and plums, cured tobacco and antique wood. It is a Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso – an entirely indigenous varietal of Friuli – which here displays a refined harmony between the gentleness of the bouquet, minerality and full-bodied fruit on the palate, along with a persistent finish. It is perfect for pairing with red meats, game and mature cheeses, but recipes with sauces, too, are a stage where Alturio can perform a concerto that combines depth with brio.
|Casa Vinicola Zonin is one of Italy’s most important privately-owned wine-producing companies and is also one of the foremost worldwide. It distributes and markets the still and sparkling wines under the Zonin label as well as those of the family’s nine Estates.
Inspired by the principle “each region has its own traditions, each region has its own wines” Gianni Zonin has, since the end of the 1960s, been selecting outstanding terroirs, bringing Casa Vinicola Zonin to its present area under vine of around 2.000 hectares, supervised by a team of 32 oenologists and agronomists. These make up 9 Estates situated in Italy’s 7 finest Regions for wine production, as well as a property in the United States, Barboursville Vineyards in Virginia.
Different production areas, each with its own specific terroir and its own peculiarities in terms of climate and morphology, the experience and professionalism of our agronomists and oenologists and the choice of dynamic business strategies: these are the most important values on which our company’s philosophy is based.
