Picolit is considered a gem among Italian wines. The origin of its name is from the low production of very small grapes. In fact, vines produce only about 10-15 grapes per bunch.

Carlo Goldoni called it the brightest gem of Friuli wine.

For those who enjoy just the right hint of oak in a chardonnay, while still enjoying the flavor of the chardonnay grape bursting through, this wine is the perfect balance - drink it young or let it age for several years before enjoying. 40% of the wine sees fermentation in small capacity barrels, while the remaining 60% is aged in stainless steel. Harmony between structured fruit and a hint of custard make this chardonnay truly memorable.
