We had this wine for lunch after a long walk in beautiful autumn sunshine. The food was a hearty Tuscan meat stew and the Refosco from Gianni Macor was a perfect match. The bottle was empty much too fast. Refosco is a red grape variety that is one of the autochthonous (original) grape varieties in Friuli Venezia Giulia in northern Italy.

The Gianni Macor winery makes a refosco that is intensely deep ruby red. In the mouth there is a lot of fresh fruit but avoiding going over-board to land in jamminess. The acidity is distinct which gives a good balance and keeps the wine quite refreshing in spite of that it is packed with flavours and colour. Alcohol is 13.5%. Definitely a wine to recommend. Price is around 10 euro.
