DOCG Colli Orientali del Friuli - Native sweet white wine
This wine is famous for at least two reasons: its palatability and its low-volume production. An old grape variety, already grown during the Roman Empire, then disappeared and recovered in 1700-1800, and disappeared once again and recovered around 1970. According to Antonio Zanon (1767) this delicious wine was pretty popular at the courts of Germany, England and France, where a visionary entrepreneur of the time, Count Fabio Asquini, was sent. Picolit dei Colli Orientali del Friuli was awarded the DOCG (Controlled and Guaranteed Designation of Origin) in 2005.
Bright golden yellow white wine, even brighter after aging.
Intense aromas marked by hints of honey, liquorice, tropical fruit.
Sweet, soft, with hints of aromatic wood and wild flowers and delicate notes of ripe fruit, balanced, with a long finish.
A classic meditation and dessert wine, ideal for special occasions. It goes well with dry pastries, but also with spicy cheeses. Also appreciated as an aperitif wine. Best served fresh but not too cold.
