The 2016 Redentore Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso comes from the ‘second label’ of the De Stefani estate. Created in the same natural style as the flagship wines from the property, the Redentore line takes advantage of some of the younger vines (15 years) that will someday produce the exceptional De Stefani wines. This wine takes advantage of the incredible indigenous varietal of the area known as Refosco. A red grape that has structure and grip, yet is complimented with a soft and aromatic fruit character. After a soft pressing, the wine is fermented and then aged in both new and used oak barrels for one year before being bottled.
Dusty dried cherries, earthy, full tannins. The bouquet is very broad, warm, ripe, spicy, with notes of dried flowers, plums, and blackberries. The fruit is enveloping, velvety, the earthy aromas are not lacking and there are notes of cinchona and other balsamic echoes.
A classy red wine that offers plenty of complexity and acid to stand up to rustic Italian fare and meat dishes. A great grillin’ red that will work with all those fun and smoky flavors and foods with a little char.

Famoso, also called Uva Rambela, is an indigenous variety from Romagna which has been rediscovered in the last ten years, after a period of abandonment. It tells the story of a variety and a territorial identity which believes in its re-launch.
This wine has a soft yellow color and green highlights and a very intense sensory profile: it is considered an aromatic grape variety. Both nose and palate show floral aromas, like tilia, orange and jasmine flowers, as well as tropical and white fruits. It is intense and rich, with a fresh, clean and balanced acidity. The finish is long lasting and aromatic.
Pair with fish and seafood recipes, risotto with aromatic herbs, white meat and fresh cheeses.
