Stubborn and reliable.
Father to all Friulian
A self-contained wine. It is the father you always refer back to: the father to all Friulian wines; the source and reminder of the past open to a new page of a chapter yet to be written. This wine evolves in an extraordinary manner. Thrifty and essential just like an old farmer with the strength and wisdom of a superhero. The Friulano is the core. Very self-contained, but very rightly so!

The grapes are de-stemmed and cold macerated. Fermentation is carried out in stainless steel tanks under a controlled temperature (16 – 18°C). This wine spends a few months on the lees and is then bottled.
Strong, persistent, refined, demure. The color of this wine is a brilliant and clear straw-yellow. The aroma is typical and very pleasant, with hints of acacia flowers, pears, thyme, and almond. Even more pleasant in the mouth where the flavors and aromas mingle in a refined and enveloping manner.
It is excellent as a drink. In the Collio area it is a classic for aperitifs. It pairs very well with San Daniele prosciutto and local salami. It also pleasantly complements fish-based dishes, fresh and mature cheeses, and finally, Frico, the staple dish of the traditional Friulian cuisine.
