2011 Collio "Studio di Bianco" Borgo del Tiglio

Each grape is vinifed separately and blended with the utmost care. A nose of spice, peach and almonds and in the mouth, power, finesse and depth. This is a true study in character and equilibrium.

2011 IGT Venezie "Morus Alba" Vignai da Duline

He and his wife, Federica, have remained committed to the practice of bio-dynamics since they took over the winery. Morus Alba comes from old vines. Sauvignon and Malvasia are partially co-fermented and the result is a complex elegant and focused wine. Some part of the Malvasia is always fermented separately and is used to balance the alcohol and richness of the wine. 60% Malvasia Istriana, 40% Sauvignon
