Friuli in the northeast of Italy 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
The 2023 vintage was characterized by heavy rainfall and adverse weather events. There were intense rains from flowering through the entire summer. This weather pattern led to a delay in the harvest. Two weeks before harvest, the weather turned very hot and windy with cool nights that enabled good sugar content but reduced must yields. The quality of the wines are very positive.
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
Vegetable dishes, seafood, grilled chicken, and delicate cheese
