A great wine,
crafted with the skills
acquired from the fathers
and the care of the sons.
An organic approach to vineyard management entails respecting the rules and regulations in place as well as adhering to an overall philosophy of safeguarding the ecosystem and its cycles. Respect not only for the life cycle of the vines but for the lunar cycles, upon which we set the calendar of our work. Indeed, the phases of the moon determine when and how we carry out the various processes in the vineyard and in the winery. We strictly
harvest the grapes by hand when they are ripe to perfection to further select only the best clusters destined for natural vinification.
The entire production cycle requires considerable effort and pursuit for perfection, with utmost respect for nature and all its forms of life. The reward, however, is a healthy, clean environment with an interesting biodiversity, brought about by the many different plants, herbs, flowers, insects and wildlife that inhabit our vineyards, which naturally contribute to the sustainability and safeguard of the entire ecosystem.

The grapes are destemmed and undergo maceration using the Ganimede method. This process allows for a delicate extraction of the noble components of the grapes, using the fermentation gases to constantly agitate the mass of marc and skins within the fermenter.
Dynamic skin maceration takes places in an environment that is saturated with carbon dioxide thus protected from any oxidation and bacterial proliferation. Fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of 18°C. The wine is then racked part into stainless steel tanks and part in 500-liter tonneau barrels. It spends a few months on the lees and then it is bottled.
Flint on the nose, with a note of toasted almonds and a suggestion of incense that takes you back in time. Its color is a pronounced straw-yellow. Gracefully contoured and elegant, this wine offers ripe pear with floral notes of acacia blossom.
Reserved for best friends. Imagine sharing stories over a glass of Friulano, through its golden clearness you can make out the profile of the hills in Pradis, Russiz, and Zegla. Our Friulano goes well with all things genuine like San Daniele prosciutto that dissolves like laughter in the mouth, and the many dishes of the Friulian tradition made with the produce the land offers: from asparagus risottos to Italian cold cuts, from the tasty local cheeses to the delicate, locally-sourced white meat, and hearty vegetable soups.
