The fields of the Estate, in the municipality of Buttrio (Udine), ideal location for excellent wine making. The C.D.O. (controlled denomination of origin) is Friuli Colli Orientali. The soil is composed of marl and sandstone with a predominantly clayey component. Crop protection is low environmental impact, focussing on traditional product with a short persistence, used according to the agro-alimentary programme for crop protection.

In wooden casks. Ageing continues after bottling in the sixteenth century underground estate cellar.
Intense ruby red colour with purple hues.
expansive with notes of ripe red fruit, plum, fruits of the forest and mulberries, all elegantly enriched with a soft spiciness. The finish is almost balsamic with evident notes of eucalyptus and liquorice.
Poweful, extremely enveloping, balanced and soft. It has an excellent embellished finish and, as is a feature of this grape, a pleasant freshness and rich tannins that are lively but silky, guaranteeing a long lasting wine.
