The production area includes a wide surface on the plain of the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region. In this land, well-known for its profound winemaking expertise, the nature of the soil and the particularly mild climate have contributed to create the best conditions for the vine growth.
This grape variety, which originates from Bordeaux region, is very popular in Friuli and in all the world. It yields structured wines, suitable for ageing.
The conferred grapes are pressed and fermented with the skins for 5-6 days under a controlled temperature. A second pressing follows, and than the wine is transferred into steel tanks to complete the alcoholic and the malolactic fermentation. After the stabilization procedure, the wine is bottled using modern technologies.
