A red wine from Friuli's native grape, Refosco. A fresh and balanced wine with aromas of raspberries, subtle hints of liquorice and a herbaceous note on the finish.
The Collio region, a strip of hills against the Slovenian border, was only reunited with Italy after The First World War. This region isreputed to have one of Europe's most privileged micro-climates for white wines which dominate the region, while the red wines are also noted for their appeal. Collio wines are rather more intense than the wines from Friuli and have impressive richness and length. 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 this area. Collavini's "Broy" is a multiple Tre Bicchieri winner and is recognised as one of Italy's top white wines.
