Friulano Amphora (2019)


  • A fantastic and unique orange wine that made Friuli famous, and that is sure to do the same for your cellar! This Friulano has been aged in amphora for around one year, an old-world technique that gives this wine a great complexity while maintaining moderate acidity, freshness and fruit.
  • Typology: Orange wine
    Production area: Friuli Colli Orientali
    Grape variety: 100% Friulano
    Alcohol Percentage: 13.5%
    Harvesting: By hand in September
    Fermentation and refinery: Manual harvest of the grapes, de-stemming and maceration of the skins with the must for 38 days in terracotta amphora. Soft pressing and subsequent decanting of the must in tank stainless steel. At the end of the decantation, the must is put back in amphora. The wine will then remain for about 8-9 months in amphora. Bottling will follow and then a period of bottle aging for at least one year before selling.
    Tasting notes: Intense straw yellow in color with light green reflections. The nose hints of apple and white flowers. The taste is dry, fruity and with moderate acidity.
    Serving Suggestions: Pairs well with cured meats, asparagus, main meat courses with herbs, shellfish baked flavored with herbs (thyme, oregano, marjoram) and grilled or roasted white meats.
