For quite some time this aromatic variety has been cultivated in the Colli Orientali of Friuli with noteworthy success. Thanks to the area’s unique micro-climate, this vine is capable of appropriately expressing its intense aromatic nature. La ponca, the hill’s terrain, gives this wine a pleasant mineral feel, resulting in its pleasant flavor.
The grapes are harvested manually and are macerated at low temperatures, before being softly squeezed. The musts obtained undergo alcoholic fermentation in steel tanks and they are maintained at controlled temperatures. Successively, the wine is placed in yeasts for approximately 6 months until the bottling phase.
This light straw-colored wine gives off a well-defined bouquet. Initially, you’ll perceive linden, followed by the fruity citrus scent of grapefruit that ends with a delicate boxwood flavor. To the palate, it’s savory, markedly aromatic and refreshing. It lasts a long time in the mouth, revealing an intriguing mineral note at the finish.
Splendid when enjoyed as an aperitif, it matches well with savory dishes made with fish and first plates seasoned with herbs. Also, try it with cold-cuts and fresh herb-filled cheeses.
