Friulano – DOC Friuli Colli Orientali

No other wine could better represent the spirit of a region such as ours. Friulano has an austere affinity with the land, crystalline clarity of character and a fascinatingly demure absence of ostentation yet on the palate it is welcoming and generously warm. An absolute wine. A wine that keeps its promises. Incisive minerality, reflecting soil and site climate.
