Friuli is an ideal region for growing white wine grapes like Pinot Grigio. It is protected by the Alps to the north and receives the sea breeze from the Adriatic Sea in the south. The favorable conditions were known even in Roman times when the region was devoted to winemaking.

The gravelly, sandy subsoil of Friuli forces the roots of the vine to grow deep into the earth in search of water. As the vine struggles, its fruit grows richer, resulting in full, well-structured wine with remarkable minerality. Select handpicked grapes of optimum ripeness are gently pressed immediately after harvest and undergo a cold-temperature fermentation in stainless steel tanks. As there is no malolactic fermentation or oak aging, the finished wine is a beautifully pure expression of the Pinot Grigio grape.

Harvest Note
It was a good year, similar to recent harvests. The beginning of 2020 was dry with a strong Bora wind that led to stunted bud break. June and July were cool and rainy, bringing growth back to optimal levels. August and September were characterized by high temperatures but an intense rainfall at the end of August avoided excessive sugar concentrations. Overall, the quantity of grapes was slightly less than previous years but this was compensated for by a great balance of acidity and sugar concentration. From the beginning, the white grape varieties had an excellent flavor freshness (due to a strong presence of malic acid) and aromatic profile.
Tasting Note
Straw yellow in color with light amber tints. The aroma is fruity and floral with notes of banana, pineapple, and wisteria blossoms. This wine is dry with great body and balance.
Food Pairing
Light seafood, grilled chicken, and delicate cheese.
