The Tertini Private Cellar Collection Refosco is just one of a handful of the rare and delightful Italian varietals winery owner, Julian Tertini, has brought to the Southern Highlands, having been raised in Bologna. Well-known in northeastern Italy and Slovenia, Refosco is an ancient varietal renown for its powerful, dark tannins and rich character.
Deep purple in the glass, the Refosco is a bold, rich style, with great concentration of flavour. Plum, blackcurrant, cassis and sour cherry characters with abundant, firm, tannins on the finish. Will benefit from decanting and also medium to long-term cellaring. 92 points, Huon Hooke.
