Born as Great Wines

“A modern wine with ancient beginnings.
Tradition for us has never been a barren nostalgia for the past, but rather a genuine basis for setting and achieving new targets with competence and innovation”.

Massimo Vidoni, wine consultant

THE WHITES

Friulano
Traminer Aromatico
Ribolla Gialla
Chardonnay
Pinot grigio

Our white wines are the result of a personal philosophy based on three fundamental principles: elegance, balance and refinement.
A potent and generous terroir, tamed to enclose all of this inside our precious bottles.

Friulano

doc friuli grave

Symbol of these noble lands

The grapes, harvested in early September, come from a single clone using massal selection of an old Collio vineyard from which wines with good aroma, structure and typicality originate. 50% are vinified immediately, while the remaining 50% stay on the skins for 24 hours at 6 °C. The must obtained, decanted cold and clean, is blended and sent to ferment in a temperaturecontrolled stainless steel tank (60%) and in oak (40%). After two weeks, it reaches its full alcohol content and subsequent decanting of the heavier lees allows extended ageing over the finer lees. In mid-spring, mild clarification is carried out before blending and bottling. Intense straw yellow colour. To the nose there are all the typical notes of Friulano, primarily almonds, which is expressed in the taste with a slightly bitter aftertaste.

Serve in tulip glasses at 10-12 °C.
Ideal with fish entrées, white meats and cold cuts

Traminer Aromatico

doc friuli grave

Full aromatic expression

The vineyard employs a clone obtained from massal selection of a former vineyard of the Foradori winery in Trentino. The grapes are harvested after mid-September in the cooler hours of the day and then macerated cold (6 °C) for 12 hours.
The must is decanted cold to get a very clean juice and is fermented in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature (max 16 °C). After being decanted twice to separate the coarser lees, the cold winter helps stabilize and clarify the wine naturally, and gives a Traminer that is slightly clarified, filtered and bottled in mid-spring. Pale yellow in colour, the nose recalls flowers with hints of roses, showing good acidity and freshness on the palate.

Serve in tulip glasses at 10-12 °C.
Ideal as an aperitif or with fish, shellfish and crustaceans in general.

Ribolla Gialla

IGT Venezia Giulia

Harmony, balance, refinement

The vinification is the traditional one in white with destemming of the grapes conferred, soft pressing of the crushed grapes and alcoholic fermentation at low temperatures.
The wine obtained as a result of stabilization processes is bottled with modern technologies.

Serve at 10 -12 °C in tulip glasses
Especially recommended with appetizers and fish dishes.

Chardonnay

doc friuli grave

A remarkable endowment of pleasure

The grapes, harvested in the first ten days of September, come from a single clone called Ersa, which provides the wines with good flavour and structure.50% of the wine is vinified immediately, while the remaining 50% is macerated overnight (skins and juice) at 6 °C.
The must obtained, decanted cold and clean, is blended and sent to ferment in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks (80%) and in oak barrels (20%), where in two weeks the win reaches it full alcohol content.
Subsequent decanting removes the heavier lees, allowing a long ageing to take place on the finest lees. In mid-spring, mild clarification is performed before blending the two wines, followed by bottling. Straw yellow with greenish highlights.
At the nose one can detect elder flowers, golden apples and the crust of fresh bread. In the mouth the sensations experienced in the nose are confirmed, with good balance between acidity, softness and structure.

Serve in tulip glasses at 10-12 °C.
Ideal with fish entrées, white meats and cold cuts

Pinot grigio

doc friuli grave

Balance and international appeal

The vineyard employs the R6 clone that yields wines with good structure and aroma.
The grapes are harvested in early September in the cooler hours of the day and then vinified immediately. The must obtained is decanted cold to get a very clean juice that is fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks (70%) and in oak barrels (30%).
When fermentation is complete, the juice is decanted twice to separate the coarser lees, allowing long aging ‘sur lie’.
The cold winter helps stabilize the wine, clarifying it in a natural fashion and giving a Pinot Grigio, blended and lightly clarified, that is bottled in mid-spring.

Serve in tulip glasses at 10-12 °C.
Ideal with fish (both raw and cooked), first courses and white meats.
