Golden yellow hues, bright wild flowers and almond blossom scents, clean but with honey and almonds. Picolit is the grape, left to dry for 2 weeks on the vine in late October followed by 25 days appassimento in small wooden crates before gentle pressing into stainless steel for the beginning of fermentation which is finished in French Oak followed by 9 months in barrel. Picolit is not unctuous, so enjoy with fresh fruit or baked fruit with cream.

 

 

In 1986 the Zorzettig family renovated vineyards in the Colli Orientali Region of Friuli. A property of 20 hectares exclusively given over to vines with a good broad range on single varietal wines. They have a splendid agriturismo if you fancy a little stop over, and they are fantastic hosts but it the wines that are the real deal here. They have a developed a style of their own, deciding to go out on a little bit of limb compared to their neighbours. You’ll never going to miss out on the crisp racy flavours of the grapes up here near Slovenia, but they harvest late to play up the rounder riper flavours in both the reds and whites. If you look through the tasting notes on each wine you’ll notice the technical care given to try and get the most precise expression of each and every wine.
