Friulano ‘Brazan’ Collio

Varietal: Friulano

Color: White

Farming Practice: Organic

Certified organic. 100% Friulano. 80-year-old vines from the Brazan vineyard of Brazzano di Cormons, in the Gorizia province. Marl and sandstone. Hand-harvested and gently pressed. Fermented and aged entirely in stainless steel for 18 months, which steers the wine’s aromatic expression from primary, varietal-related aromas to a deeper, more terroir-driven character. The Brazan vineyard is more humid and has more diurnal variation than other parcels on the domaine, which yield more hydrocarbonic aromas, and the minerality of salty sea air. Peach flowers, pink grapefruit, anise, hydrocarbons, and petrol. Profound, dense and intense. 250 cases produced.

Vinified and aged in stainless steel, for 24 months, which drives the wine aromatic expression from primary, variety-related aromas to a deeper, more terroir-driven character.
