Ever since antiquity Refosco has been considered a very renowned wine. Even the ancient Romans appreciated its character and the intense, dark color of the grapes.
In the course of the centuries, Refosco has found its “home” in Friuli. During the feasts, of which we still have historical memory, it was enjoyed together with other authochtonous Friulian wines such as Picolit, Ribolla and Ramandolo.
Refosco dal “peduncolo rosso” (with red stem) is considered to be the best among the various Refosco varietals. It stands out for its lively ruby red color. The bouquet can range from dried herbs to flowers, fresh red fruit and dark spices. The toasting notes are developed by the brief aging in wood which at the same time softens its vibrant tannins.
A small vineyard at the entrance of our winery, welcomes the visitor. It is the “Conservatoria”, a collection of old indigenous varietals in danger of extinction from the Adige Valley. Among these, you will find the Nera dei Baisi. This vine gave us great results in terms of aromatic profile during the microvinifications carried out in collaboration with the Research Institute of San Michele all’Adige in Trentino.
It is a red variety and the only surviving vine was found hanging down from a balcony in a small hamlet called “Baisi”, in the Trentino region.
Nera dei Baisi has a bright ruby red color and an intense bouquet of ripe strawberries, blackberries and raspberries. In the mouth it is fresh and fragrant, silky, with low tannins, very easy to drink, with a well balanced acidity.
Given the good results of aging in wood, we have decided to move on with this project and planted a small vineyard of Nera dei Baisi from which we obtain about 2000 numbered bottles per year.€15,00

The Casetta, called “Foja Tonda” (round leaf) in local dialect, is an indigenous red grape variety cultivated since ancient times in Valdadige, between the regions Veneto and Trentino. Since the market favored other more prolific grape varieties, little by little Foja Tonda disappeared until it became almost extinct. Luckily, Albino Armani rediscovered it in the 1980’s. The wine making team is still involved in research related to the genetic improvement of this ancient varietal.
Today Foja Tonda is considered the symbol of our company and is included in the “Conservatoria”, a collection of old indigenous varietals from the Adige Valley, witnessing the passion that binds us to our land.
