Riesling (2018)

Marco Cecchini

  • Marco Cecchini's focus is to spotlight the terroir of the small Faedis region while embracing the philosophies of bio-dynamic and organic farming. Cultivating a number of Friuli indigenous varietals, Cecchini's forward thinking has also led him to plant international varietals like Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, and this exquisite Riesling.

    Cecchini Riesling is a "Cru," coming from a single organic vineyard. It is rich, creamy, and aromatic with the minerality of the Friuli soil coming through for a fresh taste. "A walk in a wood, under the shadow of the trees in an autumn day."
