Description

"The color is an intense straw yellow with copper hues. The aromas are that of golden delicious apples, honey and wild flowers. Additional time in the bottle before release lends harmonious structure and an elegant balance to this often simplified varietal. A perfect wine as an aperitif or to pair with soups, antipasti, light meat and fish dishes." -Winery

VINIFICATION:
"The soil is a dark red clay consisting of alluvial deposits, minerals, and calcare. The grapes are hand harvested. Vinification begins with soft pressing of 60% whole clusters immediately after harvesting. The remaining fruit is destemmed, and left on the skins for 24 hours of cold maceration before pressing. Fermentation occurs in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature. Aged on the lees in stainless steel for 6 months with frequent batonnages." -Winery

WINEMAKER:
"My name is Valter Scarbolo and I am a Friulian winemaker. I inherited a love of the land and a passion for wine, from my father Gino, who ran a small farm in Lauzacco, a small town located in the heart of the Friulian plains. Today, I personally cultivate over 25 hectars of vineyards on that same land. In the cellar, I look to the expertise of two well-known Friulian enologists that share my same winemaking philosophy. I am convinced that the commitment and passion we place in our craft transmits itself through the wine we produce, and I firmly believe that our strong will and determination will allow us to continue achieving greater heights. Mandi!" -Winery
