Collio Bianco Col Disore Russiz Superiore
In the Friulano language, Col Disôre refers to a hill in the Russiz territory. At the end of 1700 during Napoleon's region, the territory was divided in two - the Russiz Disôre (Russiz Superiore), the oldest center of the entire feudal settlement, mainly on the hill, and the Russiz di Sott (Russiz Inferiore), mostly in the flats. This Friulian white wine is obtained from native grapes, 40% Pinot Bianco, 35% Tocai Friulano, 15% Sauvignon, 10 % Ribolla Gialla, which are all cultivated in Russiz Superiore, located in the municipality Capriva del Friuli.
After harvest, the grapes, including a small portion of overripe grapes, were separated from the stems. The juice and pulp underwent a cold maceration followed by gentle pressing, which separated the skins from the must. Fermentation took place in large, 15 to 30 hectoliter oak barrels (400 to 800 gallons). The wine aged on the lees for about 12 months and was bottle-aged one year.
Deep straw yellow with gold and green highlights. An elegant bouquet of acacia flowers and grapefruit with pleasant vegetal and sweet undertones. Good structure and a silky texture that coats the palate. A play between savoriness and freshness leads to a long, warm finish with almond undertones. We suggest to serve this wine at 12 °C.
