Collezione Millesimi

After a few years of careful consideration and planning, we finally have the pleasure of introducing you to our new initiative, Collezione Millesimi (Vintage-dated Collection).

WHAT IS THE TRUE COLOUR OF PINOT GRIGIO?

Straw yellow, coppery, paper white, rosé, onion skin: these are the hues that we can expect when we encounter a Pinot Grigio, so that the question often legitimately arises of what exactly is the correct colour expression of this wine.

Production Area

Our sixty hectares of planted vineyard are located in the Mariano del Friuli township, located within the DOC zone of Friuli Isonzo, in the easternmost area of northern Italy, close to the Slovenian border. The Adriatic is barely 20 km to the south, and the first slopes of the Alps about 30 km to the north.
Within the Isonzo area, we are situated on a broad terrace on the north bank of the river Isonzo.
The satellite photo reveals the faint reddish coloration of this area, due to high concentrations of ferrous oxides.
