la Roncaia - Picolit
Made exclusively from grapes of a native vine, Picolit.
Picolit is a rare vine, a true jewel of Friulian wine-making. This Picolit DOCG from the hills of Attimis has the colour of gold, the perfume of acacia honey underpinned by an elegant floral bouquet, a sublime flavour. It is the precious fruit of a careful selection of hand-harvested grapes that have just the right amount of sweetness. Aged in oak barriques for 12 months.
*Vinification: harvest is carried out in late October, but this small quantity of grapes become must only after attentive, skilled raisining lasting 6 weeks. Part of the must is fermented in new Allier barriques and the rest in stainless-steel vats at a controlled temperature. In late spring assemblage is effected and, after a year of maturation in wood, the wine is bottled. The ageing in the bottle lasts 6 months, to present you with a mature Picolit capable of giving intense emotions.
