Alturis Refosco, a special red wine with a beautiful story. Not far from the Austrian and Slovenian border, we find the Alturis winery in the north-east of Italy. The winery owes this beautiful name to the elevated vineyards in the area. These are also called Alturis. Because the estate is surrounded by Alturis, on which the beautiful 'Alturis' vineyards are planted, the name was obvious. Owners Marco and Massimo Zorzettig come from a family that has been active in the wine industry for over three generations. Because of this, they have invaluable knowledge about how to make the most beautiful wines. You can certainly taste that!

The Refosco grape is a typical grape variety found in the Friuli region of Italy and in Slovenia. Due to the unique microclimate in this region, the Refosco grapes for this white wine grow up in perfect harmony. The neighbouring mountains, in combination with the wind from the Adriatic Sea, create this perfect micro-climate. The grapes for this special Italian red wine are harvested manually in September. This harvest takes place in the early morning under the strict supervision of Marco and Massimo Zorzettig. With this strict selection of grapes, only the best and most beautiful grapes end up in the wine. By harvesting the grapes in the early morning, the skin of the Refosco is more resistant to possible bruises on the way to the winery. As soon as the grapes arrive at the Alturis winery, they are gently pressed. Vinification takes place in cement tanks.

Alturis Refosco is a special red wine. This wine is made from 100% Refosco, a grape that is rarely used. The Refosco is quite difficult to grow, but the winemaker who knows how to defy all the difficulties has a great wine on his hands! The colour is deep dark red. In smell an explosion of aromas such as blackberries, black currants, Black Forest cherries and a light pepper. The taste of this red wine is deliciously full, releasing a new sensation after every sip. Beautiful notes of ripe red fruit alternate with spices and a hint of vanilla. What a mouth-filling glass of red wine! The aftertaste is intense and full.
