Italy. Friuli. Ronco Cucco Refosco dal PR 750ml Currently Available Vintage. Free shipping.
Originally this winery produced Monte Cucco wines because the vineyards are in the Monte Cucco hills. After some years, Italian Tuscany laws designated Monte Cucco a DOC of Tuscany, so the use of "Monte Cucco" as a wine name was no longer possible. And so the name became "RONCO CUCCO" meaning vineyards on the top of the hill Monte Cucco. The word Ronco in Italian/Friulan means the top of a hill.
