The Ponte del Diavolo wines take their name from the spectacular medieval bridge in nearby Cividale. The story goes that the devil struck a bargain with the townspeople, promising to make them a bridge in return for the soul of the first living thing to cross it. The cunning citizens sent a dog or cat across, depending on the variation of the story, thereby saving themselves and gaining a wonderful bridge.
Youthful ruby red in colour, with good depth of colour and violet lights. It has a spicy, brambly perfume on the nose giving way to rounded ripe fruit on the palate. Refosco produces rich, rounded wines, with enough structure to support the juicy, blackberry fruit character.
