Chardonnay dei Sassi Cavi Collio DOC
Sassi Cavi Chardonnay Collio DOC of the Eugenio Collavini winery is a white wine made from purely Chardonnay grapes grown on the typical marly-sandy soil of Collio, around San Floriano del Collio, Cormons and Gorizia. The harvest takes place in September and Chardonnay macerates on the skins for 12-16 hours at approximately 12 °C. Subsequently, the wine ferments in steel at controlled temperature and refines to full ripening.
The Sassi Cavi Chardonnay has a slightly straw yellow colour. At the nose, the scent remembers the artemisia flowers and the exotic fruits. In the mouth it is fresh, aromatic and well-balanced. We recommend serving it at a temperature of 12 °C, keeping it safe from light, in a cool and dry place.

Chosen for you
The Collavini story began in 1896 at Rivignano. Founder Eugenio Collavini supplied wine to the noble families of Udine and to wine shops. The baton then passed to Giovanni, who worked through two World Wars at the end of which, as we know, trade boomed while the science of oenology also advanced, giving wines a quality hitherto unknown. It was Giovanni's son Manlio who noticed the first signs of major changes and indeed almost anticipated them. He was one of the first to take Friulian wines abroad. In 1966, the cellar moved to the Castello Zucco-Cuccanea in Corno di Rosazzo, built in 1560.
