The Redentore Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso comes from the ‘second label’ of the De Stefani estate. Created in the same natural style as the flagship wines from the property, the Redentore line takes advantage of some of the younger vines (15 years) that will someday produce the exceptional De Stefani wines. This wine takes advantage of the incredible indigenous varietal of the area known as Refosco. A red grape that has structure and grip, yet is complimented with a soft and aromatic fruit character. After a soft pressing, the wine is fermented and then aged in both new and used oak barrels for one year before being bottled. A classy red wine that offers plenty of complexity and acid to stand up to rustic Italian fare and meat dishes.

Since their start in the later half of the 1800s, the De Stefani family of winemakers has crafted spectacular wines, and this tradition continues today under the experience of the family's 4th generation winemaker, Alessandro. In Refrontolo, a small hilly village between the two famous Prosecco towns of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene, the family began, and they have recently accrued two other vineyards for a combined 40 hectares of total estate. In 1971, Tiziano De Stefani (Alessandro's father) moved his family to the Fossalta di Piave where they could grow many different grapes on the clay soils of the old river plain as well as their esteemed Glera vineyards for Prosecco production. A complete dedication to practices that are as natural as possible means the estate is organically farmed (soon to be certified), they rely only on naturally occurring yeasts, and never add sulfites during vinification (since 2009) to make beautiful wines from the many varietals that they have found in their unique terrain. De Stefani's Redentore label comes from the younger vines of the estate that will someday be destined to carry the house's flagship label. All the wines are vinified in the exact same way but bring incredible value to the estate as a whole. Since 2015, the Redentore wines are made with no additions of sulfites whatsoever and prove to be of the highest quality while showcasing mono-varieties of the estate.
