Verduzzo Friulano Cràtis DOC FCO
A 100% natural drying process that takes place proudly on trellises placed under roofs exposed to the Bora wind. Verduzzo grapes retain high concentrations of sugar and tannins until Christmas, then the must is fermented in wooded barrels and aged for 24 months, plus another 12 in steel tanks.

|POSITION AND VINEYARDS||
Marlyn hilly soil: vineyards situated on the Eastern side of the hills, gently sloping. Vines trained in the double arched cane fashion, 4000 vines per hectare.
By hand, late, by mid October; 60-65 quintals per hectare.
Whole grapes gently pressed; the must is decanted at low temperature and then left to ferment at controlled temperatures in steel tanks. Once the desired alcohol content is achieved, fermentation is stopped through cooling in order to preserve the natural sugar residues. The wine then remains for around 8 months on the yeast residues.
12,5 – 13 % (sugar residues 180 – 200 g/l)
6 – 6,5 g/l
