Production Notes

The Refosco grapes were harvested by hand into 10 kilograms boxes. At the winery, they were destemmed and gently crushed at a maintained temperature of 25°C. Fermentation on the skins lasted 20 days until the wine was racked and aged in 500 litre wooden barrels. Blending and bottling took place after 14 months.

Producer Information

The Specogna family owns 25 hectares of vineyard on the hill of Rocca Bernarda in the heart of the Colli Orientali DOC in Friuli Venezia Giulia. Their vineyards are planted in a spectacular amphitheatre and tended organically by Michele and Cristian Specogna, so the quality of the fruit they bring to the winery is impeccable. As a result, they are keen to get as much flavour as possible from their grapes.

Due to this quality of fruit, Michele and Cristian can macerate wines on their skins for 18 to 24 hours before fermentation. This results in a Pinot Grigio, which is ‘ramato’ (coppery) in colour, displaying a remarkable flavour intensity. While this style is fashionable today, the wine has always been made in this manner by the Specogna family.
