“Bertrando” Friuli DOC White (Sauvignon, Friulano, Chardonnay) 6 x 75cl
Vineyards grown in pebbly plains with red clay deposits. Very low yield. When the grapes reach the perfect aromatic ripeness, they are hand harvested with the first light of the dawn. Slow fermentation of the must starts in stainless steel tanks and continues in 225 L French oak barrels. The wine rests on the lease for 6 months with frequent batônnage. This process will define the character of the wine. Additional bottle ageing for not less than 12 months.
Bright straw-yellow, a delicate floral bouquet along with notes of Golden apple, acacia honey, and a slight spiciness. Balanced and silky on the palate, it closes to fruity and delicately toasted notes.
About the brand
Back in 1921, grandfather Ignazio founded the Winery, thus entering the scene of Friulian winemaking. The foresight of his son gave way to a significant growth in production, a momentum that was furthered and is renewed continuously today by his daughter Adriana, her husband Lino and their children Caterina, Nicola and Riccardo. The winery includes both the historic site in Colloredo di Prato, where tradition and innovation creatively reign, and the vineyards of Barbeano, located in the heart of the ‘Grave’.
The wines demonstrate the strength of the territory, Friuli, and testify to the tenacity of a family history that dates back almost a century .Vineyards are located in the Grave del Friuli, a broad dry plain, with stony soils ideal for vines that are at home on calcareous soils and genetically suited to flourish in testing environments. The wines of the Grave reflect the unique characteristics of these soils: mineral, fresh, fragrant, pleasantly alcoholic in content and extremely enjoyable.
