This is a thoroughly moreish red combining juicy Merlot with the dark chocolatey notes of Italy’s native Refosco. One of our favourite Italian winemakers, Alessandro Gallici, has created a red with a tasty balance of bright fruit and mocha richness.
Beyond the Label
Black plum and dark chocolate hints. Fresh, fruity and moreish
The vineyards of Italy’s northeast have long been renowned for their refreshing whites, but in the Colli Orientali around a third of the wines are red, well worthy of equal attention. There, aside from silky Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, local varieties such as Refosco provide original and distinctive wines in accessible, food friendly styles. Picco Attila caught the attention of our Buyer during a trip to the region. Not only for its dark damson, fig and prune character, but also for its value. Winemaker Alessandro Gallici likes to serve the wine with rich game or creamy polenta with pumpkin, a local favourite. And in this handy 187ml mini size, it's a delicious drop ready for anything: picnics, solo evening glasses and hampers.
"Full of flavour, a tasty wine that's very smooth. Would order and drink again"
