Our products

Product category: Friuli Venezia-Giulia

Friulano 2014

VINEYARD

Grapes used: Wine produced from 100% Friulano grapes, as befits an ancient indigenous Friuli vine, to preserve all its original and traditional characteristics.

Position: the hills of the Sottomonte Estate in the municipality of Buttrio (Udine), with their fantastic landscape, provide an ideal wine country for excellent wine making. The C.D.O. (controlled denomination of origin) area is the Colli Orientali del Friuli (Eastern Hills of Friuli). Exposure is south – southeast.

Terrain: hill and foothill area, soil composed of marl and sandstone with a predominantly clayey component.

Training system: double bending canes (called cappuccina). A traditional training technique in Friuli, optimised by our winery’s methods for small but high quality production using reduced vine vigour and a lower number of buds.

Phytosanitary crop protection: low environmental impact focussing on traditional products with a short persistence, distributed according to the agroalimentary programme for crop protection.

CELLAR

Harvesting: manual harvesting by a qualified, suitably trained workforce from the second half of September with selection of the best grapes in the field and fast transfer to the cellar.

Vinification method: white wine fermentation (without skins) with gentle pressing at low temperature under immobile covering to protect the potential quality of the grapes from oxidisation. Low temperature fermentation (15–18°C) to help develop and preserve the most characteristic aromas of this grape variety.

Maturation and ageing: first in a “sur lies” tank and then in the bottle, stored horizontally in our sixteenth century underground cellar for at least four weeks prior to labelling.

WINE

Sensory characteristics: straw yellow colour with hints of green. Fine and delicate, with a bouquet suggesting flowers and fruit. This wine has a long lasting and persistent flavour with a characteristic almond aftertaste. The elegant, slightly bitter flavour and fine aroma, typical of this wine, make it an excellent drinking wine. The aftertaste is long and persistent.

Food and wine pairings: It is a traditional Friulian white wine and is superb as an aperitif. It pairs well with hors d’oeuvres, soups, seafood dishes and white meat. An ideal accompaniment to San Daniele ham.

Longevity: reaches maximum expression of the vine in the first two years and can easily exceed four years in the bottle.

Service: best served chilled (12°C).

Chardonnay 2014

VINEYARD.

Grapes used: a wine obtained from Chardonnay grapes; a vine of French origin grown in the Eastern Hills of Friuli area where it has been cultivated since the nineteenth century. The region provides an ideal environment for producing quality products.

Position: the hills of the Sottomonte Estate in the municipality of Buttrio (Udine), with their fantastic landscape, provide an ideal wine country for excellent wine making. The C.D.O (controlled denomination of origin) area is the Colli Orientali del Friuli (Eastern Hills of Friuli). Exposure is south – southeast.

Terrain: hill and foothill area, soil composed of marl and (“Ponca”) sandstone with a predominantly clayey component.

Training system: double bending canes (called cappuccina). Traditional training techniques in the Friuli hills, optimised for quality production through reduced vine vigour and a lower number of buds.

Phytosanitary crop protection: low environmental impact focussing on traditional products with a short persistence, distributed according to the agroalimentary programme for crop protection.

CELLAR.

Harvesting: manual harvesting by a qualified, suitably trained workforce from the first week in September with selection of the best grapes in the field and fast transfer to the cellar.

Vinification method: white wine fermentation (without skins) following gentle pressing at low temperature under immobile covering to protect the potential quality of the grapes from oxidisation. Low temperature fermentation (17 °C) to help preserve the formation of the most characteristic aromas of this grape variety.

Maturation and ageing: In French barrels (10%) and in stainless steel tanks (90%) to prevent the wine from clouding through to agitation of the fine lees. The wine remains “sur lies” until bottling. The ageing period continues in the bottle, stored horizontally in the underground cellar for at least four weeks prior to labelling.

WINE.

Sensory characteristics: brilliant straw yellow colour with greenish undertones. A pleasant bouquet evoking soft, refined sensations and suggesting white fleshed fruit, exotic fruits, white flowers and bread crusts. The full bodied, warm flavour is inviting, witha reduced acidity level that contributes to the softness of the wine. An excellent balance and fine, long lasting aftertaste.

Food and wine pairings: an excellent aperitif and wine to accompany light hors d’oeuvres, first course pastas or soups, seafood based dishes and soft cheeses.

Longevity: reaches maximum expression of the vine in the first two years and then develops elegantly for a period that can easily exceed four years.

Service: best served chilled (12 °C), avoiding sudden drops in temperature that impair the best organoleptic expression of the wine.

About us

Company details

The company is located in Buttrio (UD), 100 km east of Venice and 90 km south of the border with Austria, in the ‘Fruili Colli Orientali’ d.o.c. district, precisely in a hilly area dedicated to the production of wine in which vineyards are the predominant feature of the landscape. The family estate extends across 110 hectares of vineyards. On 15th February 1585, the noble family d’Attimis-Maniago received the Buttrio company as dowry for a marriage. In the words of the current owner, Count Alberto: “Our relationship with the vine and the vineyard is a family union which has lasted over 400 years“.

The origin of the Attimis dynasty dates back to the patriarchy of Aquileia and, as attested by the imposing family archive, a significant production of wine began in the 1700s, even if there are many testimonies of wine being shipped to Italy and other foreign countries in earlier centuries.

The first bottles of Conte d’Attimis-Maniago appear in 1930, a pioneering initiative in the Friuli region. As Count Alberto often states: “We are proud of our past; it is a heritage rich in tradition and experience from which to glean strength and learn important lessons. The story of my family and the tradition of my land are essential pieces of our current business philosophy because they force me to commit to what I have received from those who came before me and to what I will leave to those who come after. They also constantly inspire our innovative spirit and desire to improve“.
