OUR WHITES

“While tasting a “Ronco delle Cime” Friulano, a “Ronco delle Mele” Sauvignon, a Ribolla Gialla or that excellent Pinot Bianco signed by Venica, you feel the sense of belonging to the land, you discover the values of the territory, you taste the commitment and the effort, you are enchanted by the friendly hospitality of the family, and finally you are satisfied with a high quality and you perceive how these bottles were born from a real life project based on respect and loyalty to their land and origins”.

One of the most famous wineries of Collio specialized in white wines, Venica&Venica has always pursued the road of excellence, respecting tradition and valuing its origins and values. A border area between Friuli Venezia Giulia and Slovenia. Here there are vineyards that climb up several hills, each one of which, given the different altitudes and exposures, has various microclimates that provide and guarantee incredible complexity to the wines.

Among the approximately 40 hectares of vines, most of them (about 85%) are white berried, and each one has its specific peculiarities for position, morphological conformation, exposure to sunlight and breezes, presence of surrounding areas with forests, humidity, slope… Every single hectare is unique and sometimes several different microclimates can occur even on the same hill.

Collio – a land of great white wines

 

Therefore, thanks to the Collio area, with its pedoclimatic variety, the subsoil of “Ponca” and its exceptional daily thermal excursion, Venica & Venica produces some of the most awarded and well-known white wines in Italy. However, an excellent grape, although it may be indispensable for obtaining a great wine, is not enough. It also takes other ingredients. We choose the best of the best in science and technology, we respect the environment that surrounds us and the community to which we belong, we value our tradition, our origins and our territory.

That is why, while tasting a “Ronco delle Cime” Friulano, “L’Adelchi” Ribolla Gialla or “Pètris” Malvasia, so rich in Mittel-European territoriality and culture, we can easily take a trip to the green forests of Dolegna’s hills, among which we can catch a glimpse of the vineyards, most of them composed by Friulian autochthonous grape varieties of ancient origins.

For the most traditionalists, we cannot miss a sip of “Ronco delle Mele” Sauvignon, “Tàlis” Pinot Bianco or “Ronco Bernizza” Chardonnay, best expressions of the elegance of Collio among some of the most well-known international white grape varieties of the world.

This is how Venica&Venica, a treasure casket of precious vineyards, tells its story through its wonderful Friulian white wines, each one with its own history and unique in its kind.

The 2019 vintage for Venica & Venica

 

 

The 2019 vintage, by the way, gave excellent wines: full-bodied, structured, with a beautiful mineral vein, fresh and with a good aromatic profile.

 

These characteristics are the result of a mild winter, followed by an unusually cool and rainy May, which delayed the flowering of the bunches.

In a very hot summer, some thunderstorms at the end of July rebalanced the water ratio of the vines, allowing us to harvest healthy and perfectly ripe grapes in September.

Agronomic considerations 2019

 

So, how was vintage 2019 for us?

Here are some climatic and agronomic considerations: from winter months to summer, in particular the long-awaited harvest and obviously the development of vinification in the cellar.
