Friuli-Venezia Giulia

(Italy)

Viticulture has experienced some dark moments, risking even total destruction, but has always been able to be reborn as a point of strength and prestige of the regional economy.
The production is not very high, about 752,000 hl of wine in 2009, but is distinguished by the absolute qualitative value, especially of white wines among the best in Italy.
The factors that make these areas particularly voted for viticulture are above all the land, marly in the hilly areas, stony and clayey in the plains, the climate, rather mild in the province of Gorizia, and the wide diffusion of quality vines, fruit of a strict selection, which places this region at the top of the world in the production of rooted cuttings.
The most renowned traditional varieties are the Friulian, the Friulian verduzzo, the Istrian malvasia, the yellow ribolla, the picolit, and among those with red berries the refosco from the red peduncle and the pignolo, the latter able to give great wines.
The success of Friulian enology is also linked to the establishment of international wines, such as Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, Riesling, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon.
The areas known in the world for the great whites are those corresponding to the Collioe in the Colli Orientali del Friuli, where the terrain, the particular flyscg of Cormòns, takes on a decisive value. In addition to whites and reds of great structure, in this territory is produced an elegant dessert wine, the Ramandolo DOCG, produced by verduzzo friulano. Another flagship among the dessert wines of Friuli is the DOCG Colli Orientali del Friuli Picolit. Also in the area of ​​the Colli Orientali, two red grape vines are cultivated, the tazzelenghe and the schioppettino, a bit particular also in the name: the first has the acidic and tannic components so decided to cut the tongue, the second crackling in the mouth thanks to its vivacity.
In the Grave DOC area, the pebbly ground that refers to the landscape of the Grave in the bordolese, creates the ideal environment for the Friulian, while in the area of ​​the Karst DOC, characterized by white and gray rocks, vitovska, Malvasia istriana and terrano, quest 'last red berry, are expressed on good quality levels.

Climate and soil
Thanks to the protection of the Carnic Alps and the proximity of the sea, the climate in the flat part is generally of a maritime type, with temperatures not very high; in the northern part of the region the climate is typically alpine. There is abundant rainfall in the Karst. Where there is no protection of the barrier of the Alps, the icy 'bora' blows, a cold and icy wind, but which brings good weather; manages to reach 100 km / h, with gusts that touch 150 km / h; and even reach the coast of the Marche through the Adriatic. In Trieste we find the bora, on average ten times a year, which also appears as a moderate wind, commonly called 'borin'.
History
The name of this region indicates a composition of two distinct geographical areas, but both derive from the Latin 'gens Iulia' (the family to which Julius Caesar belongs). Friuli originally 'Forum Julii' was the name of a shopping center (forum means market), built by the Romans, in the current city of Civedale. The name of the city then extended to the whole region. Venezia Giulia, on the other hand, is a recent name reminiscent of the Venetians and the 'Gens Iulia'. After the First World War the territory of the current region was part of the Veneto region, together with some areas of the former Yugoslavia. After the Second World War the nine-tenths of Venice Giulia were lost and the Friuli region was reunited with what remained of the same, the current Region was established.
Typical products
The most valuable DOC are Colli Orientali del Friuli, or "COF", north-east of Udine, and Collio goriziano, or simply "Collio", coming from the province of Gorizia. Some of the vineyards of western Primorska are also part of these DOCs: the latter, while politically part of Slovenia, geographically belong to Friuli. Some winemakers own vineyards on both sides of the border. In other parts of Italy, also in Friuli-Venezia Giulia there are coopertative wineries, but this region, unlike Trentino-Alto Adige, is dominated mainly by family-owned farms. The most widespread vine in this region is the Friulian: so because of a diatribe with the Hungarians, the vine has been renamed for centuries known as Friulian.
Typical dishes
The appetizers are unmistakable: the San Daniele ham, sweet and soft DOP product, served in very thin slices cut by hand, with figs or melon, or that of Suaris, smoked with spruce, juniper and flat wild woods, which it can be served sliced ​​or in cubes with cumin seeds. Among the first courses there are the Carnia agnolotti, pasta stuffed with ricotta, boiled spiny, candied citron, raisins and breadcrumbs, the cialzon of Timau, another pasta stuffed with potatoes, spices, raisins, aromatic herbs, seasoned with smoked ricotta or other grated cheese and melted butter. Among the cheeses stand out the montasio, PDO with different levels of maturation, the cheese of the cit spread, the saltarello, the dairy of Fogagna, cow's milk cheese with a sweet taste, which can undergo a maturation ranging from two to eighteen months. Among the desserts there are fruit and jam omelettes and apple, pear, apricot and peach fritters. Very special is the gubana, a sweet dough spread and filled with almonds, walnuts, pine nuts, citron and candied orange, chocolate, all flavored with rum and cinnamon, arranged in a spiral and baked.
