Winemaker Notes

This wine is a lively yellow of mid-range intensity and it appears crystalline in the glass. It's perfumes are clear-cut and well-defined. You'll discover meadow flowers, jasmine and pear. To the mouth, it's compact and vibrant, approachable and pleasant. This wine boasts good structure and persistence and it gives off an agreeable mineral taste that adds flavor at the finish.

Wine & Spirits
Luscious and warm, this wine feels toasty and as creamy as custard, the fruit held firm as if bounded by the tight skin of a nectarine. No alcohol shows: just clean fruit with the substance to match a warm salad of octopus, prawns and cuttlefish.

Torre Rosazza Winery Image
Torre Rosazza: in 1979 the company was acquired by Genagricola, who immediately embarks on a process of study and zoning of 90 hectares of vines, to identify the quality of each individual land parcels and find that for exposure and geological properties are better able to interpret the vineyards of the area. For guiding the choices in the cellar, it is in these years Filiputti Walter, who embarks on a journey that is still Torre Rosazza along.

It was he, for example to introduce (probably for the first time in the whole Friuli) the use of barrels for the long aging of red wines, and it was he who gave the "beyond" the line of Ronchi, Cru Torre Rosazza. In these years, was born Altromerlot, wine emblem of Torre Rosazza, and identifier already in the name of a production concept different from the current one at the time, and inspired by the finest French winemaking techniques. Currently, the management of the Company is entrusted wine winemaker Luca Zuccarello.

The source of some of Italy’s best and most distinctive white wines, Friuli-Venezia Giulia is where Italian, Germanic and Slavic cultures converge. The styles of wines produced in this region of Italy's far north-east reflect this merging of cultures. Often shortened to just “Friuli,” the area is divided into many distinct subzones, including Friuli Grave, Colli Orientali del Friuli, Collio Goriziano and Carso. The flat valley of Friuli Grave is responsible for a large proportion of the region’s wine production, particularly the approachable Pinot grigio and the popular Prosecco. The best vineyard locations are often on hillsides, as in Colli Orientali del Friuli or Collio. In general, Friuli boasts an ideal climate for viticulture, with warm sunny days and chilly nights, which allow grapes to ripen slowly and evenly.

In Colli Orientali, the specialty is crisp, flavorful white wine made from indigenous varieities like Friulano (formerly known as Tocai Friulano), Ribolla gialla and Malvasia Istriana.

Red wines, though far less common here, can be quite good, especially when made from the deeply colored, rustic Refosco variety. In Collio Goriziano, which abutts Slovenia, many of the same varieties are planted. International varieties like Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc are also common, but they tend to be Loire-like in style with herbaceous character and mellow tannins. Carso’s star grape is the red Teranno, notable for being rich in iron content and historically consumed for health purposes. It has an earthy, meaty profile and is often confused with the distinct variety Refosco.

High-pitched and vibrant with a delicate perfume, Friulano thrives in the NE Italian region of Friuli-Venezia Giulia near the border of Slovenia. Extensive in the area by the early 1930s, today Friulano grows in all of the best zones and is usually, but not always, bottled as a single-varietal wine. Somm Secret— The Friulano grown today, while named for its present home of Friuli, is actually the Sauvignonasse grape, a minor cultivar that came from Bordeaux.
