Main Characteristics

From the straw-yellow colour and the golden reflections, it immediately tells the nose of its typical floral structure; one perceives notes of orange blossom typical of the area of origin of this vineyard.
When drinking it one can taste notes of bitter almond, fine citrus, persistent, complex.
Tasting it, one finds oneself walking in a meadow. One of those old pastures that renew the tradition of wild flowers and field grasses, which the Friuli region still manages to keep alive.

Wine-making and Bottling

The grapes are made into white wine through de-stemming and immediate pressing. Alcoholic fermentation at a controlled temperature. Matured in steel. Followed by bottling and ageing in the bottle for 5 months at the end of spring.
