Overview

An assemblage of two different vines: Chardonnay coming from the company farm on the Eastern Friuli hills, and Tocai Friulano, a classic vine that has always been cultivated on the Gorizia hills from where it comes. The choice of this new wine by the company was to express to the utmost the potential and vocation of the two areas. It is the synthesis of the experience and philosophy that have always guided the Schiopetto family.
