"Ponca" is the typical element of our soil: a sedimentary formation integrally made of clayey marl alternating with layers of sandstone. The "Ponca" shows low fertility and good capacity to hold water, gives uniques features to the grapes and the wine such as full-bodied taste and colour, tannins, and minerality. The location of the vineyards on terracings, the Ronchi (top of the hills), and the perfect exposure allow the full ripening of the grapes. Ventilation is good thanks to the Bora and the winds coming from the Adriatico Sea. The remarkable temperature range between day and night makes the grapes more flavoured and sugary.
Excellent as an aperitif, it goes well with typical Friulian cold cuts and traditionally with eggs and asparagus. It accompanies fresh and fatty cheeses, savory risottos and fish dishes. Recommended serving temperature: 12-14 ° C.
