Produced entirely from Pinot Grigio, a variety also called Rülander when it was introduced in the seond half of the 1800s in the Gorizia area. It immediately demonstrated that it adapted to the clay marne of Collio, in particular to the descending slopes of the local hills. It is distinguished from other whites grapes in that the color tends to be copper. The grapes are grown in the vineyards of Budignacco, Pozar and Dragica, at elevations from 100 to 140 meters (325 to 475 feet) above sea level. Sappy, fresh and vinous nose, with some pear and greenage. A skillfully vinified white, with cream, fruit and stone notes woven seamlessly together, showing great charm and poise, but with enough vinosity and sinew to work well at table.
