Friulano

D.O.C. (Controlled Designation of Origin) Friuli Colli Orientali

Of certain Friulian origin, it is the most representative wine of the region, not only because it is the most widely cultivated of the white grape varieties, but because it manages to strongly express the potential and character of this territory. Its name until 2007 was “Tocai Friulano” but, due to a European Court ruling in favour of wine produced in Hungary, its original name was replaced with the current name “Friulano”.

The harvested grapes are delicately de-stemmed. Soft pressing follows and the must thus obtained is clarified by decanting.The vinification continues with alcoholic fermentation at a controlled temperature (18-20° C) in stainless steel containers.After fermentation, the wine is aged for 3-4 months in stainless steel tanks, taking particular care in the preservation and evolution of the "fine lees", with frequent bâtonnage (stirring).

Straw yellow coloured wine with beautiful greenish hues. Its intense aroma recalls wild flowers, hay and almond. On the palate it is fine, delicate, full and round, with a notable hint of bitter almonds.

Excellent as an aperitif wine and with lean starters. Ideal with pasta dishes seasoned with vegetable sauces, fish sauces or white meats and cheeses. Excellent with San Daniele cured ham.
