Friuli Aquileia DOC
100% Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso
750 mL - 1500ml
TYPE OF SOIL
At the Ca’ Bolani estate in the Aquileia DOC zone of Friuli, the soils (called “magredis”), thanks to their alluvial origins, have a similar structure to that of the terrain in the area of Bordeaux: a mixture of sand and clay with layers of gravel. They therefore have an excellent ability to retain and then release to the vines those mineral elements that they require in order to thrive.
5,500 vines per hectare (2,225 per acre). On average, the vines are ten years old.
4500 kg of grapes per hectare.
VINIFICATION AND AGEING
The grapes are harvested by hand and carefully selected prior to being placed in traditional viniﬁ cation tanks, where fermentation take place, as well as maceration on the skins for 15 days. The wine matures for 12 months in Allier oak barriques, followed by at least a further 6 months’ bottle ageing.
