This is the Friulano grape - originally called Tokai Friulano - Intense & flowery, dry & expressive. Hints of hawthorn nettles & wild flowers.
Gently dry & fragrant & full of flavour- long minerally dry aftertaste with salty notes
An exciting new find - this is a lovely wine - ideal as an aperitif or also really great with all fish & light meat dishes...
Colour: White 100% Fruilano
The Petruccowinery is the result of Lina and Paolo Petrucco's lovefor their land: we are in the heart of the D.O.C. area Colli Orientali ofFriuli (Eastern Hills Of Friuli), in the town of Buttrio inMonte, Udine (Italy).
The Colli Orientali ofFriuli are sunny and gentle slopes,ideal for viticulture, that has been practiced in this area since ancienttimes. The soil is of Eocene origin, basically made up of stratified clay andcalcareous marls. This peculiar soil, locally called ponca, isparticularly suitable for vine-growing, because it is very rich of mineralsalts and microelements.
Theestate spreads over a total area of 35hectares with vineyardscovering 25 hectares. Because of the focus on high quality the averageannual production consists of about 100,000bottles, as a result of an intentionallylow yield.
