Friulano Collio DOC
Grown in the area of Collio, which features “Ponca” soil, unique and native to the area and mostly sandstone and marlstone. The vineyards also enjoy excellent exposure, altitude and protection against cold wind.
After fermentation in stainless steel, the wine rests on its lees for about six months to give the wine more richness and structure. It is a wonderful accompaniment to flavor-filled dishes seasoned with aromatic herbs as well as fattier fishes, such as salmon, and Asian cuisine.
