Vivid straw yellow, with coppery tinges. Nose: complex fruity fragrances, mixing tropical sensations with delicate spicy notes. Palate: a full and creamy body finishing with a refined minerality and a powerful, long-lasting aromanticness.
There, where our gaze follows the lines of hills and green terraces, oft-times lingering on verdant woods then sweeping across the plain to the far horizon and the glittering contour of the sea. There, where vines are gently caressed by a sweet breeze, protecting them from the old north wind. There, where acacia, chestnut and ancient oak grow, silent witnesses to ancient wine-making traditions matured slowly in technique and wisdom. There, where over the millennia clay marl and sandstone forged gentle hills whose soil is ideally suited, for its position and composition, to vine-growing.
Amidst the rolling hills of Friuli Coli Orientali DOC zone, famous for the prestigious Ramandolo and Picolit DOCG wines, these magical places are home to the La Roncaia vineyards, highly select hectares nurtured by the loving care of people who cherish precious jewels.
Pairing Suggestions: Hors d’oeuvres, cold cuts, soups and risottos.
Maturation: At full ripeness and pressing is made on whole grapes. Fermentation and maturation are effected in Allier oak barriques, where the wine slowly evolves for a total period of about one year. Spontaneous alcoholic and malolactic fermentations allow to develop complexity and body. The final ageing in horizontally placed bottles allows its perfect balance.
