The Collio is a vast hilly region located in the extreme part of the
Friuli flat land, where there are gentle slopes of vineyards, vast
forests and small villages. Recognized as one of the most prestigious
areas of Italy and the world for wine production and especially for the
high quality of its unique and unforgettable white wines, the Collio is
a precious gem in the world of wine. Strategically located, surrounded
to the north by the Julian Alps and the Slovenian mountains, and to the
south far less than 40 km from the Adriatic Sea. The Bora that runs
through the Vipava Valley and the air currents that run through the
area of Cividale affect the viticulture in this area, ensuring fairly
cool temperatures and low humidity for most of the year, while the
proximity to the sea makes that the climate is mild during the winter
and that wines are characterized by freshness and flavor. 2016 harvest
was the first to give us wines with organic certification but for years
the work has been done in total respect of nature in the vineyard and
in the winery, preferring manual labour and limiting the use of copper
and sulphur on the vines, not using animal by-products in the
production of wine.
After careful selection of grapes, the must is fermented in stainless
steel tanks at controlled temperatures. The conversion of sugar into
alcohol is carried out by yeasts naturally present on the grape skins.
Afterwards, the wine is aged partly in stainless steel tank and partly
in French oak barrels for ten months before being bottled.
