After thinning-out the bunches on the plants and manual late harvesting, it is time for the fermentation in stell and, for the cru, refining in french oak barrels.






Pinot Bianco


GRAPE VARIETY: 100% Pinot Bianco

PRODUCTION AREA: DOC Friuli Colli Orientali



HARVESTING METHOD: hand-Harvesting with selection of the bunches

VINIFICATION: The grapes are harvested at the right degree of ripeness, stripped from the stalks and gently pressed. The must then ferments slowly in stainless steel vats at a precisely controlled temperature (16 °C). The maturation continues in stainless steel vats, during which time also a lengthy series of batonnage processes is carried out at set intervals to produce a well-rounded and full-bodied wine, with a delicate bouquet. After a long ageing on the lees, the wine is bottled in June.

NOTES ON FLAVOUR AND BOUQUET: Has a bright pale straw-yellow colour. Intense bouquet with good complexity and finesse. Hints of yellow flowers, acacia and broom, crusty bread and mineral salts. Dry mouth, soft with good flavor and freshness, persistent, intense, with good harmony.

SERVING SUGGESTIONS: With risottos, cream soups, consommés, egg or fish-based dishes, salmon.
