DOC COLLIO Grape Variety:
100% Chardonnay Alcohol
Friuli Venezia Giulia, Doc Collio, Murno vineyard, San Floriano del Collio
Marl, sandstone, partial clay, poor organic substances (Ponca)
4800 plants/hectare (Guyot)
Traditional white vinification, with manual grape harvest, soft pressing with pneumatic press, and brief cold maceration on the skins, static decantation of the must, temperature controlled (18°C) fermentation in stainless steel vats. Long settling on the yeasts and brief period in large oak casks (1500 L).
Straw-yellow in colour with “copper” highlights. Quite high in alcohol, elegant body, average fixed acidity. Full, but delicate aroma, hint of freshly baked bread, with almond flavours after ageing.
