Winemaker's Notes:

About This Wine: A wine with great personality and an exceptional and intense spirit. It is straw-yellow with green reflections. The bouquet contains notes of sage, green pepper, hazelnut and white peach. The intense and fragrant overtones of tropical fruit, mint and pepper reiterate on the palate.<br/><br/> <strong>Food Pairing:</strong> It pairs with traditional Friuli dishes such as omelette with herbs, vegetable soups, wild asparagus and Adriatic fish.<br/><br/> Winemaking: <strong>Area:</strong> Parco della Vite e del Vino in the Colli Orientali del Friuli in Colloredo di Soffumbergo (Faedis), vineyard: “Sotto Casa”.<br/><br/> <strong>Land ype:</strong> Marly-arenaceous rock of eocene origin rich in calcium and potassium containing discrete levels of phosphorus, magnesium and many other micro-elements.<br/><br/> <strong>Cultivation Method:</strong> Guyot.<br/><br/> <strong>Grape Harvest:</strong> Harvested by hand in the second/third week of September.<br/><br/> <strong>Vinification:</strong> Destemmed grapes are placed in stainless steel tanks with separating grills for 24 hours at low temperature (cryomaceration) and are then gently pressed. <br/>The must then undergoes spontaneous decantation for 8-12 hours which is then followed by controlled fermentation (16-18 °C). After fermentation, the wine is kept within total yeast limits for a short period and then kept under light yeast limits until spring when it is bottled.<br/><br/> About Thie Winery: Our winery is located in the “Colli Orientali del Friuli” Controlled Denomination of Origin area. It stretches over 14 hectares of vineyards in the hills, protected by the Prealps to the north and exposed to the positive atmospheric effects of the Adriatic Sea to the south, creating a ventilated and dry climate.<br/><br/> The soil consists of marly-arenaceous rock with Eocenic origins, therefore it is ideal for growing vines in the hills. It is rich with lime, potassium, a discrete amount of phosphor, magnesium and many other microelements.<br/>The average density per hectare of 5,000 vines, allows us to obtain the right ratio between quantity and quality of the product.<br/><br/> We use some of the most modern equipment in the cellar for vinification, from ageing to storing of the wines, but we are aware that the most advanced technology can never replace nature, inasmuch as good wine finds the high clone selection of our vines, the quality of the soil, the particular microclimate as definite presuppositions, but also, if we may permit ourselves, our utmost commitment and passion and that of our collaborators.<br/><br/> Our production currently consists of about 65% of white grapes and 35% red. However, we are planning on gradually reaching an equal production of whites and reds.<br/><br/> Growing system: Guyot and runner system<br/><br/> Plant order: 2.5 m between each row; 80 cm between each vine.<br/><br/> Hand harvesting. These cultivating choices limit the quantity of grapes produced per vine, there by favouring a higher concentration of the quality, increasing the sugar content, creating a more intense colour, enhancing the typical perfume and flavour of each variety.<br/><br/> Technical Analysis: <strong>Region:</strong> Colli Orientali del Friuli DOC<br/><br/> <strong>Varietals:</strong> 100% Sauvignon Blanc<br/><br/> <strong>Alcohol:</strong> 13%<br/><br/>
