The name comes from the Germanic tribe called Longobards who ruled Friuli and the northeast of Italy after the romans. It means ‘high farm’ as the wine is produced by using the grapes varieties growing on the highest parts of our hills. The varieties used are Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Tazzelenghe and Petit Verdot in different ratios depending on the unique characteristics of each year’s harvest. The wine is matured in wooden barrels and aged in bottle before being ready to be commercialised.
