THE BEAST OF THE EAST: REFOSCO DAL PEDUNCOLO ROSSO

If you haven't tasted Refosco, it's a shocker of a grape. Named for its distinctive red stems, it's a specialty of northeastern Italy where it ripens late, giving brawny wines with high acid and tannin. In typically Italian fashion, Roncaia dials their rendition up to 11, harvesting late, putting the grapes through 8 weeks of appassimento drying, and 18 months in new French barrique. The result is the dizzying opulence of blackberry compote, sun dried fig, and chocolate truffle balanced by bruising tannin and serious structure. With all the richness of Valpolicella with the bite of Barolo, Amarone checks under its bed for this monster of a wine before it goes to sleep.
