History It has been confused in the past with Refosco because it was mistakenly referred to in California when it was introduced, although it has nothing to do with the Refosco cultivated in Italy.
Characteristics of the wine obtained from this grape variety It is aromatic with a deep purple color, with plenty of acidity and considerable tannins. The bouquet is powerfully aromatic, with notes of sour cherries, damson plums, pencil lead and a invigorating hint of black pepper.
Notes It is susceptible to drought and cholorosis, can be vulnerable to mites, and to downy and powdery mildew (Oidium).
