Collavini Pucino Friuli-Venezia Giulia Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso 2020

A vibrant and light bodied wine with aromas of
raspberries and cranberries with a refreshing, saline finish.
Producer Note
The Collio region, a strip of hills bordering Slovenia, is reputed to have one of Europe's
most privileged micro-climates for white wines, while the red wines are also noted for
their appeal. Founded by Eugenio Collavini in 1896, this family owned house is now run
by Manlio Collavini together with his three sons. Located in Udine, they were among the
first to vinify Ribolla Gialla-an ancient local variety- and to implement new winemaking
technologies. Collavini prides itself on its clean, modern style wines, while still retaining
the traditions and grape varieties native to the area. Collavini's 'Broy' is a multiple Tre
Bicchieri winner and is recognised as one of Italy's top white wines. As keen dog lovers,
the Collavini’s very first pet Dachshund 'Ribolla' is portrayed on the label.
Vineyard
The grapes were produced in the Corno di Rosazzo, Premariacco, Cividale del Fruili
and Faedis territories, within the DOC Friuli-Venezia Giulia. Both Spur Cordon and Guyot
training methods are used on the vines, which are planted at a density of 4,600 to
5,000 per hectare. The soils in the vineyard are mainly made up of marl and clay which
offer good water retention properties to sustain the vines through the warm summers.
Gentle sea breezes come from the Adriatic Sea which keep the vines dry and healthy,
while the Alps protect the vineyards from cold, northerly winds. Warm days and cool
nights offer the perfect combination to allow slow maturation of the grapes,
maintaining beautiful balance between natural acidity and sugar levels.
Winemaking
The grapes were destemmed, and then cold macerated at 4°C for a week, in order to
carefully extract the fruit flavours from the skins. A brief fermentation took place in
temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. Maturation and ageing continued in tank
until the following spring, retaining freshness and the purity of fruit from the Refosco dal
Peduncolo variety.
Tasting Note
Friuli's native grape, Refosco shows vibrant and fresh aromas of briary fruit and
raspberry, complemented by subtle hints of liquorice. Light bodied with beautiful
balance and delicate herbaceous notes leading to a fresh and elegant finish.
