A grape variety of French origin, grown in the Friuli region since the middle of the nineteenth century.

Training system: “Cappuccina” and “ Guyot” method with low bud capacity.

Vinification methods: White wine vinification method with immediate separation of the must from the skins and slight pressing. Controlled temperature fermentation (18°C) to encourage the development and preservation of the primary aromas.

Tasting Notes: Straw yellow colour with slightly coppery undertone. The bouquet is delicate with fruit hints of Golden apple and floral hints of sambuco and almond tree  with citrus fruit and grape-fruit zest. On the palate it is dry, fresh and full-bodied, harmonious and refined. The finish has a pleasant minerality and the typical varietal aromas.
