COLLIO BIANCO COL DISÔRE

Name

In the Friulano language, Col Disôre refers to a hill in the Russiz territory. In 1648 the territory was divided in two—the Russiz Disôre (Russiz Superiore), the oldest center of the entire feudal settlement, mainly on the hill, and Russiz di Sott (Russiz Inferiore), mostly in the flats

Appellation

D.O.C. Collio

Production Area

Russiz Superiore, located in the municipality Capriva del Friuli. Elevation: 80 meters (263 feet) above sea level

Grape Varietals

40% Pinot Bianco, 35% Tocai Friulano, 15% Sauvignon, 10 % Ribolla Gialla

Type of Soil

The Collio’s hilly terrain, formed during the Eocene period, is composed of layers of sandstone and loam rock (limestone and clay) that were once the ocean floor. Today the sea, which is about twenty kilometres (12 miles) away, and the nearby Alps send afternoon breezes over the vineyards, cooling the grapes after a warm day of sun. Proximity to mountains and sea, along with the mineral-rich but poor soils, create the ideal situation for producing complex, well- structured wines that are very age-worthy. These soils are impermeable so rainwater flows off their surface, producing little erosion and preventing standing water

Vine Training System

Guyot

Plant Yield

About 0.80 kilograms per plant

Harvest

Most were hand picked in the second week of September, with a small part harvested at the beginning of October

Winemaking

After harvest, the grapes, including a small portion of overripe grapes, were separated from the stems. The juice and pulp underwent a cold maceration followed by gentle pressing, which separated the skins from the must. Fermentation took place in large, 15 to 30 hectoliter oak barrels (400 to 800 gallons)

Aging

The wine aged on the lees for about 12 months and was bottle-aged one year

Tasting Notes

Deep straw yellow with gold and green highlights. An elegant bouquet of acacia flowers and grapefruit with pleasant vegetal and sweet undertones. Good structure and a silky texture that coats the palate. A play between savoriness and freshness leads to a long, warm finish with almond undertones

13.5 %
