Ponte del Diavolo

Ponte del Diavolo is a collaboration between Andrea Morlin of Ca'Morlin, winemaking consultant Alana McGettigan and Blank Canvas’ Matt Thomson. The wines are made from fruit grown on the well-drained soils of Grave del Friuli, offering a fuller style than those from Verona.

The Ponte del Diavolo wines are named after the spectacular medieval bridge in the nearby village of Cividale. The story goes that the devil struck a deal 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 a cat across, depending on the variation of the story, thereby saving themselves and gaining a wonderful bridge.

The Refosco is a typical example of this grape variety: rich and rounded, with enough structure to support the juicy, blackberry fruit character.
