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 are grown in the San Floriano del Collio, Gorizia, Cormòns and Mossa
territories in DOC Collio. The soils on the hilly region are known as ‘Ponca’, which rich in
sandstone with alternating layers of marl, which 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. The vines are trained to the Cordon Spur and Guyot methods and are
planted to a density of 4,500 to 5,000 per hectare.
Winemaking
The grapes, which were harvested at full ripeness, were pressed immediately in order to
retain freshness. Fermentation was carried out in steel vats for approximately two weeks
at controlled temperatures of 14 to16 °C. The wine was gently fined and then matured
on its fine lees until the following spring adding texture and complexity.
