One of the diamond points of Friuli's wine-making tradition, this extremely precious wine derives from a fragile vine variety that has been carefully cultivated thanks to the know-how of farmers who lovingly work to obtain fruit that is truly a gift of nature. Torre Rosazza boasts the largest expanse of Picolit dei Colli Orientali del Friuli vineyards and, for the company, this wine has a special symbolic value that underlines the deep link it has nurtured with the territory since its founding.
These grapes are harvested by hand in the autumn and later placed on fruit racks, for a withering process that lasts for nearly 60 days. During this period, the grapes lose nearly 40% of their weight. Successively, the bunches are de-stemmed and their marcs are pressed. The must obtained undergo alcoholic fermentation partly in stainless steel and partly in durmast barriques.
This wine is brilliant gold. Its delicate, engulfing perfume recalls honey, pastry cream and white peach. The palate will be charmed by its compact texture and pleasantly intense sweetness.
This has always proved a meditative wine and it's a pleasant surprise with fois gras pate, buffalo ricotta with acacia honey and butter pastries or cream-filled biscuits. It's also great with fresh cheeses like Robiola and Tuma de paia.
