The Territory

A MILD GARDEN CARESSED BY THE WINDS

The Friuli wine region nearby the Isonzo river is like an open window with maritime and continental winds and breezes blowing through.

The cool, dry Bora wind coming down from the Balkans alternates with breezes blowing in from the Adriatic. There’s a continuous climatic modulation with predominantly fresh easterly winds tempered with the influence of the sea.

This creates a unique microclimate which favors northern viticulture with hints of the Mediterranean. Plentiful sunshine and tangible temperature variations of the Friuli region assist the slow maturing of the vines, which yields firm, well-balanced grapes with full flavor and aroma.

Wine styles are a reflection of their soils

The stones and gravel of the river transmit a characteristic savory flavor to the grapes.

The richness of minerals brings a common trait of freshness and elegance, with purity of fruit.
