Story

From Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant:

Friuli Colli Orientali Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso “Morus Nigra”

  • Aged for 11 months in 2.5hl oak barrels (maximum 30% new oak)
  • Aged in bottle for a minimum of 12 months
  • Fruit sourced from the Duline and Ronco Pitotti vineyards
  • Morus Alba and Morus Nigra are the botanical names for the white and black mulberry tree. The shape of these trees is found on most of Duline’s labels and, more importantly, these trees are typical of the rural northern Italy landscape. Mulberry trees were used to support vines instead of poles and at the same time to feed silkworms (about 60 years ago the textile industry in Italy was flourishing).
