This wine is a blend of Friulano, Riesling, Pinot Bianco and a small amount of Traminer Aromatico, in proportions that vary from vintage to vintage.
Its personality is closely associated with the presence of Riesling and Traminer, which give it a highly aromatic German-style character, while Friulano confers vigour and Pinot Bianco delicate ripe fruit.
It is fermented in steel, where it subsequently remains ageing on the lees until a few days before bottling.
The grape varieties that compose it always mingle well, as required by any self-respecting blend. It is a big, balanced, concentrated wine.
