About the Wine
This cracking red wine by Fantinel is produced in Venezie. This wine is exclusive to Matthew Clark meaning you won't find it at multiple retailers. Available in 75cl bottles, supplied by Fantinel. Sant’ Helena Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso delle Venezi is a delicious wine, made with Garganega and Trebbiano/Ugni Blanc grapes. This cork closed wine is made with added suplhites but is suitable for vegetarian drinkers. A great choice for rich beef dishes and game.
Refosco wines have particularly high acidity and are mostly dark and densely coloured with violet and grassy aromas. It also brings dark peppery spices and plums notes with an almond-skin finish.

Fantinel, based in Spilimbergo in the heart of the Friuli region. A family owned winery established in 1969 by Mario ‘Paron’ Fantinel. Guided by the family’s third generation, represented by Marco and Stefano who manage 300 hectares within the two DOC regions of Grave del Friuli and Collio. A green approach has always been important; installation of a photovoltaic system in 2010 is an example. Their commitment towards sustainability has been a cornerstone of their viticulture since 2001.
From the cool northern regions to the sizzling south of Sicily, Italy is a kaleidoscope of colours, flavours, grapes and styles from regions such as Borolo to lesser-known Montefalco and Etna.Explore Italy
