Buy Zuc di Volpe Refosco
Refosco is the true great Friuli red wine, which grapes are native right in the Colli Orientali del Friuli area. It is a structured wine, full, rich in character, but over time gentle and velvety. The color is garnet red turning to purple and the aromas are of wild blackberry and other wild berries: it is a combination of aromas and feelings that place this wine among the greatest Italian reds. The flavor is dry, a bit tannic, full bodied, with a persistent aftertaste.

Producer
The heart of the complex, with its offices and the cellar is comprised of a heritage villa, dating from 1596 and a complex of buildings which surround the villa. Inside the property of 20,000 square metres is found the centuries old park and a small vineyard of Ribolla Gialla, which recalls the wine vocation of Volpe Pasini. Dating from the seventeenth century there are documents which testify to the wine production on the property. The company since then has always expressed a purely agricultural vocation, and in the second half of the twentieth century it became exclusively wine producing. During the 70’s along with other “pioneering producers”, Volpe Pasini carried Fruilian winemaking into Italy and the world. Leaving behind the logic of wines in demijohns, they concentrated their energies into the research for excellence and into the close examination of new outlets in the international markets (above all USA and Germany). Now days Volpe Pasini sells 50% of its wines outside Italy, through a solid commercial network more than thirty years old. Today Volpe Pasini is more vital and competitive than before, having found once again the solid base and the innovative willingness which has made it, during the past decades, one of the most important wineries of Friuli Venezia Giulia.
