Friulano Liende Friuli Colli Orientali DOC La Viarte
The Friulian word "Liende" means "legend". La Viarte winery has chosen this name for its Friulano Liende, to indicate a great Friulian white wine proposed only in the best vintages. Friulano Liende is the result of a careful selection of Friulano from the oldest and most noble vines of the winery. The different maturity and winemaking methods create a wine where tradition and modernity are perfectly combined. Vinification with soft pressing and fermentation in steel at 16 °C. A very small part of the grapes ferments in barriques before refinement. The wine ages on the fine lees in steel tanks and barriques for 7 months, then it refines at least one month in bottle before being on the market.
Friulano Liende is straw-yellow in colour. Powerful and intense aromas, in some ways creamy, with notes of white flowers and apple accompanied by the typical hints of bitter almond. Excellent tempering and structure, combined with a strong typicality and excellent drink. We suggest serving it at 10-12 °C.

It is the beginning of a winery that fixes in its name the connection between dream and reality, between roots and air, between past and future: "Viarte", in Friulian, means "spring".
