Harvested by hand in small baskets, the first week of September. On the nose it has very sweet fruity and floreal notes, typical of the Friuliano from Rosazzo. Intense citrus fruits, orange skin and sweet almond. Salty and mineral notes nicely combine in the finish with intense hints of custard and almond paste. Very fresh and ample in the mouth, the perception of sweet almond and cream is clearly detectable, the finish has good acidity and sapidity with a slight bitterish aftertaste.
Colli Orientali del Friuli DOC
3 BICCHIERI GAMBERO ROSSO
SOIL: Eocene marl poor in organic nutrients but rich in minerals
Destemmed and pressed in an inert gas atmosphere (N2). The must sees spontaneous
clarification in stainless steel for one night. Alcoholic fermentation follows lasting 15
days. Remains on the lees for 6 months with weekly bâtonnage
JAMES SUCKLING: Aromas of sliced cooked apples, orange peel and honey follow through to a full
body, a dense and oily palate and a long and flavorful finish. So much fruit and
intensity here. Drink now.
