2012 Masut da Rive Refosco
£26.90

This Refosco is ruby ​​red with violet reflections. Fresh and intense, it is reminiscent of the fruits of underwood; blueberry, blackcurrant, red fruits. To the palate it shows its structure and tannins, it is elegant with well-balanced fruity notes accompanied by a fresh acidity.

The history of Masùt da Rive’s Pinot Noir began in the mid-1980s, after a trip by Silvano, the patriarch, to the land of France. Silvano then took a decision that today we could define as groundbreaking and visionary: against all the commonplaces and widespread prejudices that considered Friuli unsuitable for the cultivation of Pinot Noir, he decided to take a risk and planted the first vines.

Soon, Silvano understood why the attempts made up to that point by the area’s winegrowers had been unsuccessful: Pinot Noir had always been treated like Merlot or Cabernet, the classic generous red varieties that nestled perfectly in Friuli.

Silvano – like a truly successful experimenter – radically changed his attitude, taking care of Pinot Noir, in the vineyard as well as in the cellar, as if it were destined to become a great, great white wine. And why not, Silvano thought to himself…

After all, that red variety came from an area, Burgundy, which is the mother of phenomenal whites. Basically, Pinot Noir is the father (by gem mutation, as the technicians would say) of two whites that in Friuli turn out very well: Pinot Bianco and Pinot Grigio. Pinot Noir, in short, is a white “in disguise”, a white dressed as a red: it is tannic and complex, but extremely elegant and rich in nuances…

Pairing Suggestions: It goes well with different kind of recipe: from hearty first course dishes to fish, red meat, lamb, games and mildly aged cheeses.

Maturation: After the malolactic fermentation, it ages in French oak barriques for twelve months.
