||Villages of Oslavia and Capriva del Friuli (GO)
||Altitude: 80-150 m. a.s.l.
|Composition of the land
||The Collio’s hilly terrain, formed during the Eocene period, is composed of layers of sandstone and loam rock (limestone and clay) that were once the ocean floor. Today the sea, which is about twenty kilometers (12 miles) away, and the nearby Alps send afternoon breezes over the vineyards, cooling the grapes after a warm day of sun. Proximity to mountains and sea, along with the mineral-rich but poor soils, create the ideal situation for producing complex, wellstructured wines that are very age-worthy. These soils are impermeable so rainwater flows off their surface, producing little erosion and preventing standing water.
|Yield x hectare
||About 1.2 kilograms per plant.
||All hand picked at the end of September.
||After harvesting the grapes are separated from the stalks. The must and pulp undergo a cold maceration on the skins followed by a light pressing to separate the skins. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel temperature controlled tanks.
||The wine thus obtained is left to refine some months on the lees before being bottled.
