Friuli in red and white

the wines
 

Friuli, Italy's north-easternmost region, is often considered a pure white wine growing terroir, but already our tastings of the 1990ies have demonstrated the potential of its red grape varieties. Thus, the region is red-and-white, not only because of its Austrian heritage.

While many, in Italy, still dream of their "indigenous" varieties, Friuli has recognized and exploited their full potential for quite a time. Their names are Friulano (ex Tocai friulano), Ribolla gialla, Refosco dal Peduncolo rosso, Tazzelenghe, Schioppettino or Pignolo and they give marvelous wines. The fact that even Sauvignon blanc has found an ideal terroir here, giving juicy, fruity and rich wines with a slight minerality, which show an identiy of their own compared with those from France or New Zealand, has been known for quite a while as well.


The famous Abbazia di Rosazzo in the Colli Orientali area. Its vineyards have, after years of forth and back, been rented by the Livo Felluga winery which aquired also the brand name. (photo: E. Supp)

Out of the close to 100 wines which we were able to taste during the "Ein Prosit" meeting in Tarvisio, on the Italian-Austrian border, we have selected the 50 best. By the way, "Ein Prosit" is worth a visit not only because of the wines, but also because of the cooking seminars and the broad selection of prosciutti, cheeses, sausages, breads and, last but not least, beers which can be tasted during the two days.

You can support our work through a direct donation.
