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 vineyard is situated in IGT Venezia Giulia at 100 metres above sea-level and has a
south facing, sunny orientation with gentle coastal breezes from the Adriatic Sea which
keeps the vines dry and healthy. The Alps help to 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. The 20 year old Ribolla Gialla vines are spur cordon and Guyot trained
and are planted at a density of 4,800 per hectare. The vines are carefully managed
throughout the viticultural year and yield 95 quintals per year. They are grown in
'Ponca', the Eocene soil of the Colli Orientali del Friuli, which is rich in sandstone with
alternating layers of marl. The meticulously selected bunches are harvested in small
cases during the morning, when the northerly breeze has dried the light veil of
nocturnal humidity.
Winemaking
The grapes were harvested during the second half of September and left to macerate
at 13°C for six hours. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at a controlled
temperature of 15°C for approximately two weeks. The wine was matured in stainless
steel until the following spring, retaining the freshness and purity of fruit.
Tasting Note
