Venezia Giulia IGT

Bud break across all the varieties was in line with the historical norm in our area,
 and the vines were able to develop in optimal temperatures and to take advantage
 of normal rainfall.
The first two weeks of June, which are crucial for the development and fertilisation
 of the flowers, saw fine weather and contributed signifi cantly to this year’s 
generous crop.
In addition, an unbelievable growth in the local beneficial insect population was 
noted, including ladybirds and earwigs, but particularly bees, those ultra-efficient 
pollinators,which built their wild hives in our vineyards.
July ushered in torrid conditions, with temperatures reaching record highs 
(31.8 °C), forcing us to irrigate the deep, rocky soils in the Isonzo area both early
 in the morning and at night. In the Collio however, natural springs in the Ponca 
formations provided the vines with a good supply of water, preventing stress 
during the ripening stage.
Between late August and September, all of the vineyards benefi tted from 
significant day-night temperature diff erentials, ranging as wide as 14.5 degrees. 
Such conditions are of crucial importance for the metabolism and development 
of aroma precursors in all the grape varieties.

Giving a rich, luminous straw-yellow colour, the wine slowly releases its aromas, 
initially banana and apricot, followed by hints of tropical fruit and summer flowers, 
with herbaceous notes of sage completing its impressive aromatic mosaic. 
Vibrant and well balanced on the palate, it boasts full fl avours and superb 
elegance, with a well-balanced, very crisp finish.
