Collavini Broy Bianco Collio Friuli-Venezia Giulia 2019

Beautifully exotic aromas leading to a rich, complex,
buttery flavour enhanced by pineapple and tropical fruits,
long and complex.
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 vines are grown in the municipal territories of San Floriano del Collio e Cormòns in
DOC Collio. The Collio Goriziano's marl and sandstone soil nurtures the vines and
produces aromatic wines. The soils offer a good balance of water retention to nourish
the vines throughout the summer and ample drainage if required. 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. Planted at a density of 4,500 vines
per hectare, the vines are trained according to unilateral and bilateral Guyot methods.
Winemaking
Collavini's flagship white wine. The grapes were picked from overripe bunches and
then laid on drying trays. The Friulano and Chardonnay berries were dried at
temperatures of between 6 to 8°C in a modern, ventilated drying room with almost zero
humidity, where they lost between 15 to 20% of their water content, concentrating the
sugar content in the grapes. The Sauvignon Blanc grapes were pressed separately,
after brief skin contact and were then chilled to block fermentation. The three musts
were blended and fermented in steel tanks, followed by maturation on the fine lees
until the summer following the harvest.
Tasting Note
Intense aromas of ripe tropical fruits, acacia honey, orange peel and summer flowers
open on the nose. Softly textured with a warm palate, this is beautifully balanced by
freshness and minerality through to an exquisitely long finish.
