The territorial character and the structure of Friulano blend with the elegance and fullness of Chardonnay and the olfactory complexity of Sauvignon, giving an explosion of aromas and flavors, a full-bodied sip and a strong and pleasant persistence on light toasted and vanilla notes.
This is our “Tre Vignis“, the classic “Collio Bianco” blend of grapes from the Venica&Venica portfolio, a wine introduced to the market in the 1980s.
The percentages of the three grape varieties are around 50% for Friulano, which is therefore the main quality, 30% for Chardonnay and 20% for Sauvignon. Each of the three contributes wonderfully to the final result with its own features: typicality and structure for Friulano, elegance and body for Chardonnay, aromaticity for Sauvignon.
The vineyards of this dry white wine are inside the DOC Collio area.
Our Bianco DOC Collio ‘Tre Vignis’ is a blend of three grapes:
Chardonnay (30%) and
Tocai Friulano (50%).
This wine is a real blend of grapes. The complexity of vinifying different varieties together is given by the difficulty of harvesting the grapes with the same perfect ripeness. To overcome this problem, we pick the Friulano grapes at their optimal maturation because they compose half of the wine, and for the other varieties a manual sorting is carried out in the vineyard to harvest only the perfectly ripe bunches.
The grapes were hand picked and de-stemmed on September 14th 2016.
The maceration of the three grapes takes place at the same time, since it is a real blend of grapes. The must ferments and ages on the lees in 5 HL tonneaux (about 50%) and the rest in 30 HL stainless steel containers. Production is limited of around 2,000 bottles.
The wine was then blended and bottled during the full moon of July 2018.
75 cl Wine bottle
Intense and brilliant golden.
The olfactory panorama ranges from bitter almond, typical of Friulano, to banana, coming from the Chardonnay grapes, to green pepper, unique of Sauvignon. Thus, it offers freshness, territoriality, and a harmonious bouquet of fruity and vegetable notes. There are also light vanilla and smoky shades.
In the mouth the structure is solid, the body is full, the sip is fruity, soft, slightly creamy and persistent, with a prolonged finish on toasted notes, on the tomato leaf of Sauvignon and on the bitter almond unique of Friulano.
The structure of this wine allows it to be paired with important dishes of baked white meat, porcini mushrooms, aged cheeses. Try it with spicy gorgonzola and pumpkin risotto or wild herbs crepes.
