The first two bottles opened of this were both corked. The third was sound. Refosco is the name of the grape mostly used in northeast Italy. Deep ruby in color, lighter at the rim. The nose is dusty with dark cherries and slight mild mint. On the palate, light tannins with tart acidity. Cherries and red currants. This is drinking well but should be drunk sooner. Some depth. This will go well with pasta, pizza and most foods.
