The Ronchi di Cialla family has been instrumental in saving this ancient, indigenous grape variety from Friuli, which nearly suffered extinction due to war and pestilence.
From the importer: Aromas of white pepper and small red fruits, currants and blackberries, intriguing balsamic and undergrowth (sous-bois) notes.
Flavorful, with fruity sensations, well-balanced minerality; fragrant and well ripe tannin. Although a wine of good structure, it has a refined and almost silky balance; it is baroque, aristocratic, of great elegance and long life; full character and racy.
Pair with traditional dishes such as roasted white and red meat; meat with light sauces; mushroom-based dishes, medium and hard crust cheeses.
