This wine is produced by the historical Tocai grape, which has been cultivated in the Friuli region since 1600. Our Friulano grows on the hills of Buttrio, and has an incredible terroir. Once the grapes are manually picked and brought to the cellar, we do a brief maceration with the skins to give structure and body to this wine which ages incredibly well.
Winemaking: destemmed grapes, cold maceration of 6 hours with the skins and soft pressing. Fining by flotation, alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tank at controlled temperature (16-18°C). Ageing in stainless steel tank with battonage for 18th months. Bottling and then fining for 6 months before sale.
Alcohol: 12,5% vol
Colour: deep yellow with some green notes.
Bouquet: rich and persistent with floral notes.
Taste: fruity, good acidity and full-bodied, with the typical almond aftertaste.
Serving suggestions: to be served chilled, is perfect as an aperitif, and pairs well with fish dishes and cured meats.
