The Cabernet Franc is ruby red in colour, compact and dark. On the nose it is of great intensity and elegance, with both fruity and vegetable sensations. The nose-profile range moves from red-berried fruits such as black cherries, blackberry and blackcurrant to the vegetable aromas of bell pepper. The palate is important and elegant with a rich, full and pleasant body. It shows a freshness with velvety overtones. A long finish confirms and develops the nose.
The Pinot Grigio is a brilliant, golden yellow with copper reflexes. Intense, ample and refined, starting with floral notes of acacia and hawthorn. It evolves towards fruity notes of peach, pineapple and pink grapefruit, with a delicate mineral note in the finish. Generous, soft and harmonic, it has the typical characteristics of its grape: a good acidity in a perfect balance with a pleasant softness and good structure.
The Collio DOC area is located in the extreme North of Italy, among Slovenia, Austria and the Julian Alps. This charming borderland features ample surfaces facing south, which are perfect for highly qualified viticulture. Here, vine growing dates back to pre-Roman times, and DOC was established in 1968. These hilly areas give origin to Collio DOC Pinot Grigio , a wine which expresses the vocation and potentiality of this area full of history, tradition and energy.
