Winemaker Notes

Straw-yellow in color, Ascevi Cerou Pinot Grigio has a bright, floral fragrance. White flower aromas are joined by bits of Lychee fruit on the expressive nose. The palate is loaded with ripe, yellow delicious apple flavors. Hints of lemon zest are present as well along with a nice roundup of spices such as white pepper and a hint of vanilla bean. Tart, green apple flavors emerge on the finish along with limestone, graphite and wisps of tangerine zest. Firm acidity lends to the refreshing and crisp nature of this wine.

James Suckling
This is a little reductive on the nose at first, but there are some decent apples when you get past that. Medium-bodied with a candied-apple finish.

Ascevi Terrace Overlooking Vineyards Winery Image

The City of San Floriano del Collio nestles among gently rolling hills covered with vineyards, cherry trees and acacia woods, within the Friuli Venezia Giulia region near the Slovenian border. It is here that Mariano and his wife Loredana planted their first vineyard on a small plot of land in 1972. Over the years their great commitment and enthusiasm has allowed the estate to increase its area to approximately 30 hectares, situated in the Collio and Friuli Isonzo DOC zones, which have always been prime winegrowing country.

The hamlet of Ascevi is the name of the area where the largest vineyard (approximately 6 hectares) is located. Luwa is derived from combining the names Luana and Walter, Mariano and Loredana’ s children. The Collio vineyards are situated at an altitude between 180 - 250 meters above sea level in soil with good structure and mineral content made up of stratified marl and sandstone. Most of the estate’s production comes from these vineyards.

Collio is a crescent-shaped sub region of Friuli-Venezia Giulia that hugs right up against the Slovenian border. It is perfectly situated for growing wine grapes, especially of the white variety.

The Julian Alps to Collio’s north allow the influx of cool, nighttime breezes, while the Adriatic Sea to its south regulates the region’s temperatures. The area contains flysch soils, a layered, sedimentary rock that formed millions of years ago as continents collided under the sea. Today the flysch soils that dominate the hills of Collio provide an interesting substrate for vine roots, with measurable mineral variations within small areas. The fractured layers of flysch soils also facilitate drainage and deepening of vine roots.

The region boasts a unique set of indigenous white varieties including Friulano, Ribolla gialla, Malvasia and the rare, Picolit. International whites—Pinot grigio, Pinot bianco, Sauvignon (blanc) and Chardonnay—have also been in the area for well over 100 years. Today Collio is often associated with crisp, clean, floral and fruity whites. But in recent years, there has been a resurgence in popularity of the ancient Slovenian style of fermenting white grapes on their skins. This process retains additonal colors and phenols, producing a complex finished wine with an orange hue, warranting the term, "orange wines."

Reds are far less common but the indigenous Pignolo makes an age-worthy red, and the international varieties Merlot and Cabernet grow here as well.

This “white” variety is actually born out of a mutation of Pinot Noir and shows a unique rosy, purplish hue upon full ripeness. The grape boasts two versions of its name and two generally distinct styles: the crisp, Italian Pinot Grigio and the softer French Pinot Gris. Somm Secret—Given the color of its berries and aromatic potential, Pinot Grigio is commonly used to make "orange wines." An orange wine is a white wine made with fermentation on its skins (similar to red wine making), leading to n orange hued wine with ephemeral aromas and extra complexity.
