95 points James Suckling
“A wine with gorgeous fruit such as peaches in addition to spices and minerals. Very aromatic. Medium-to full-bodied, very spicy and very intense. Powerful and rich. Almost burns with spiciness. Dense center palate. Great finish. Superb wine. Savory.”
Vinous Reverie Notes
A traditional characteristic wine with a strong personality, obtained purely from Tocai Friulano grapes, historic varietal from Collio of Gorizia, planted in a well ventilated hill area where the soil is mainly clay and limestone (called “marna”) with origins from the eocenic era. The grapes are all picked by hand, pressed in a soft press after which there follows a brief period of decantation in total absence of sulphur dioxide. This is followed by fermentation in stainless steel tanks under a controlled temperature. The ageing takes place on the lees for 8 months.
Variety: 100% Friulano
Fermentation: 10-12 days in steel tanks
Aging: in stainless steel tanks for 8 months
Food pairing: Excellent also as an aperitif, the wine is well matched with San Daniele ham, eggs and asparagus dishes. Interesting pairings with Asiatic foods.
