Savian Organic Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso 2019

13.99

Description

Summery Italian red from organic vineyards in Lison Pramaggiore, in the Veneto.

From a precious strain of low-yielding vines planted in the 1970s, this is relatively light in colour and body, the ruby-garnet reflections give an indication of a young wine, unoaked. This is confirmed on the nose with a blast of summer fruits and floral influences, violet and iris. What we love about Refosco is the fine balance of acidity and gripping tannins, providing structure to its natural fruitiness, sweet ripe plum, morello cherry, blueberry and blackberry all to the fore but kept fresh and clean by the wine’s frame. There’s a minerality to this as well which provides fluidity and softness, rounding out the tannins and providing a basis of extra complexity on the finish, subtle earthy and floral characters revealing themselves.

Serve lightly chilled with dried meats and hard cheeses.

Savian is a third generation family winery founded by Marco Savian in 1925, after being granted a small holding of four hectares for his service in the First World War. Marco built a house and tended the tough, arid and clayey soils by hand, planting vineyards in a previously desolate land, once known as Bandita after the bandits and brigands that roamed the nearby oak forests.

The modern winery and extended 42 hectare estate is situated between two rivers where the provinces of Venice, Pordenone and Treviso meet, taking in the Lison Pramaggiore and Venice DOCs. Pinot Grigio, Lison Classico and Chardonnay do well here, along with Merlot, Refosco and Cabernet Franc. Ahead of current trends, the Savian family converted all vineyards to organic farming in 1993, and in 2007 installed a solar farm to produce their own sustainable energy to help power the winery.
