Varietal

Merlot 100%

Terroir, personality, and backbone.

A wine that has broad shoulders just like the mountains that border our region, from which it gets its rigorous personality. It expresses the strong character and the tenacity of Friuli Venezia Giulia and its people.

Vineyards

Exclusively from our “Ferrovia” vineyard. 6,000 vines planted per hectare, trained using the Guyot method. Yield of 60 ql/ha.

Harvest

Meticulous hand selection.

Vinification

Destemmed, the grapes ferment in stainless steel tanks. During this phase, we conduct several pumping over of the cap per day, in order to obtain a maximum extraction of color and sweet tannins.
