FRIULANO

A classic, with a personal touch.

"A combination of judicious know-how, passion and skill."
A great classic, more personal than conventional. A combination of judicious know-how, passion and skill produce a wine which, when it achieves perfection, delivers complex aromas of fruit and flowers and unfolds soft on the palate while preserving a slightly almondy finish. A wine of absolutes that refuses ambiguity and is capable of matching all the authentic specialities of classic Italian cuisine.

ARBIS BLANC

From grass covered vineyards, the meeting of sun-kissed Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Bianco e Friulano.

"Arbis is at the same time an alternative and a complement to the monovarietals."
“Arbis” is an ancient name for a young wine which peaks the language of flowers and aromatic herbs, and in fact in Friulan the name means ‘herbs’. The choice of the word is the simplest way to describe how we grow it, in a vineyard with a covering of wild grasses and herbs. Grass cover, cut back periodically, is a way to mitigate the effects of the mono-culture typical of today’s specialised vineyards and above all to contain the vigour of the vine. Arbis is at the same time an alternative and a complement to the monovarietals, an expression of the mutual diversity of the varieties which compose it but also the splendid unity they create in the wine.

GORTMARIN

From our oldest vineyard.

"To enjoy at table or all by itself, in moments of peace and tranquility."
The plot of land in which our merlot, cabernet franc and cabernet sauvignon vines have grown for over 40 years has always been known by this name. The grapes hang on the vine until well into autumn for a late harvest followed by a traditional-style red wine vinification. The must ferments with the skins for three weeks and then, before the fermentation has completely finished, it is transferred into small French oak barrels. It is this passage that gives softness to the wine, the perfect balance and integration of the oak. Gortmarin has an underplayed style which favours elegance but it has a depth and a complexity which unfolds with the passing of time. And in fact, thanks to its balance, this is a wine made to evolve over the long term, maintaining its varietal character and acquiring a pot-pourri of aromas of spices and dried flowers. To enjoy at table or all by itself, in moments of peace and tranquility.

About us

Company details

ESTATE
Every successful wine is the result of exploration and discovery. It is the fruit of a story. Here is ours.

A strictly limited number of labels which are the expression of a viticulture respectful of the environment and a personal interpretation of the native varieties of Friuli-Venezia Giulia.

Making a small range of wines means making choices. It teaches you to select and to reflect. On the land inherited from our grandfather we have embraced the best practices of biodynamic viticulture, without shouting it to the skies. Selecting the best sites, we have planted new vineyards, matching the various varieties each to its own position, aspect and elevation. Exploiting to best effect the differing sub-soils, we have always left grass cover in the vineyards to check the vigour of the vines and at the same time to preserve the natural balance of the soils that receive them.

ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT
The land is an inheritance and we have a duty to preserve it. In 1990, in order to be sure of limiting the environmental impact and to guarantee the health of the vines, we adopted, from the very beginning, high density planting.

Green harvesting and crop thinning, long fermentation on the lees, malolactic and unfiltered bottling have been the key words, together with dedicated manual harvesting aimed at picking each variety at the moment of perfect ripeness, to preserve that touch of crunchy freshness which is the hallmark of our wines.

EQUISETUM AND SOLERAS
Making sustainable choices drives us on. We do not use chemical preparations in our vineyard, only copper sulphite and above all infusions of equisetum e dandelion, which give excellent results if applied at the right moment in the vegetative cycle.

During vinification we use a small-scale solera system to recuperate a part of the yeasts. Those that are left will inoculate the new musts, so that their DNA is preserved over time. Because wine is also memory.
