The Petrucco winery 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, is particularly suitable for vine-growing, because it is very rich of mineralsalts and microelements.
The estate spreads over a total area of 35hectares with vineyards covering 25 hectares. Because of the focus on high quality the average annual production consists of about 100,000bottles, as a result of an intentionally low yield.
