DOC COLLIO Grape Variety:
100% Merlot Alcohol
Friuli Venezia Giulia, Doc Collio, San Floriano
Marl - sandstone, “Ponca”
4200-5500 plants/hectare (Guyot)
Traditional vinification “to doff one's cap”, manually harvested grapes, and stalk separation, soft pressing and maceration of the skins (approx. 8-10 days). Ageing in cement casks for a year follows.
Ruby-red in colour, more or less intense, full bouquet, fragrant with slight aroma of roses. Light herb flavour, dry, savoury, and tends to be more refined and more harmonious with age, flavoursome, almost velvety with blue to garnet-red colour.
