In the Friulian language, "real," means true; this wine is so called because 50% of the grapes are the Friulian native varietal Tazzelenghe. Tazzelenghe means "tongue cutter" due to its fantastic acidity and is rather difficult to tame, a bit like the land in which it is born.
Since 1989, Michele Moschioni has devoted himself to the production of red wines in a territory famous and known in the world for the quality of its white wines. Michele does it because he wants to enhance these indigenous vines.
