      Chardonnay Friuli Isonzo DOC 2018

      A successful, straightforward interpretation of the French grape variety, the signature of the Pecorari family is also clearly identifiable here. In a medium-bodied style, it convinces with a lively lightness and a refined, mineral taste of bananas and tropical fruits. Aromatic complexity also in the finish, never losing its precision and personality. The 8-month yeast lagering gives it depth, length and a good ageing potential. SUPERIORE.DE

    • Pinot Grigio Friuli Isonzo DOC 2019

      Pinot Grigio Friuli Isonzo DOC 2019

      Pinot Grigio has been at home in the Isonzo for 140 years now. With the necessary sensitivity, it develops a great deal of elegance and structure and can almost be described as autochthonous here. It is not surprising that Alvaro Pecorari has taken this grape variety to his heart. A white wine rich in finesse with a floral bouquet and a fine peach note. On the palate it is multi-layered and quite complex, the 8-month yeast storage gives it depth, length and a good ageing potential. SUPERIORE.DE

      “Gris” Pinot Grigio Friuli Isonzo DOC 2018

      The Pecorari family's passion for varietal wines is best represented by the Pinot Grigio Gris, aged on the fine yeast with bâtonnage for 11 months. Fermented in oak, this Pinot Grigio offers an exciting and complex bouquet of white peach, citrus, flint, crushed oyster shells, white rose petals and notes of acacia honey. The well-proportioned acidity, the fresh taste and the wonderful depth and tension make it easy to see that the Pinot Grigio takes an absolutely special position at Lis Neris every year.

    • "Picol" Sauvignon Bianco Friuli Isonzo DOC 2017

      “Picol” Sauvignon Bianco Friuli Isonzo DOC 2017

      Shiny, rich yellow with silver reflections. On the nose it has a smoky and mineral note, with a rich bouquet of mango, citrus fruit and asparagus. It shows its true class on the palate: wonderfully complex structure, lots of natural sweetness, refreshing acidity and a juiciness, power and length that can only be achieved by long yeast contact with simultaneous circulation. Very convincing, even engaging! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Sparkling straw yellow with green notes. Intense nose of sage and tomato leaves, lots of gooseberry. Sparkling on the palate, nice play, juicy, very present fruit, lots of juice in the final." Falstaff

      "Deep straw yellow. A big, full-bodied but fresh Sauvignon Blanc, with vibrant gooseberry and sage aromas and flavors. Finishes long with harmonious, zingy acidity and very good clarity." Vinous

      "Some quite rich tropical-fruit aromas with grapefruit and lemon citrus played into a mix of herbal notes. The palate has a concentrated, juicy feel with plenty of textural layers." James Suckling

      Bright yellow-green. Intense nose of orchard fruits, ripe peach, roasted nuts and some lemon mousse, rounded off with creamy vanilla. In the drink then very juicy, not too heavy, with salty elements and warm yellow fruit notes. Chardonnay made by Lis Neris is always a perfect pleasure and of lasting memory.

    • "Lis" Bianco Venezia Giulia IGT 2016

      “Lis” Bianco Venezia Giulia IGT 2016

      Lis is a mixed set of Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc and is one of the top wines of the house. Wonderfully multi-layered in its aromas of citrus and passion fruit, yellow apple and an initially barely perceptible taste guide through the Sauvignon Bianco. All the elements of this cuvée are equal on the palate and masterfully wedded together, the mouthfeel is soft and round. This complex and at the same time elegant white with its subtle pressure makes you want more and inevitably fascinates every Friuli fan. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Sparkling straw yellow with slight green nuances. Complex nose with notes of kitchen herbs, lots of tarragon and marjoram, then rich yellow fruit notes. Sparkling on the palate, accentuated salty notes, shows many yellow fruity notes in the back, beeswax in the final." Falstaff

      "A floral nose with a fresh, perfumed delivery of tropical fruit like lychees and papaya. The palate follows in that vein with a fresh run of orchard and tropical fruit in crisp, mid-weight mode." James Suckling

      "Medium deep straw yellow with golden highlights. Sweet spices, gooseberries, and fresh citrus fruits on the nose and in the mouth. Well balanced, fresh and penetrating, this finishes slightly tangy and zingy, with noteworthy lift for such a big, extracted white wine." Vinous

    • "Confini" Bianco Venezia Giulia IGT 2016

      “Confini” Bianco Venezia Giulia IGT 2016

      Confini can rightly be considered one of the best white wines of Friuli. This crescendo is an exciting blend of Gewürztraminer, Pinot Grigio and Riesling, with the strong aromas of Traminer clearly leading the way. Medium-bodied on the palate, creamy fullness and silky intensity, with hints of tropical fruits, gingerbread and exotic flowers. In the last third of the wine, the palate is again wide open, full of freshness and grace and with the lasting, deep impression that more than does justice to a top wine of this appellation. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Intense, sparkling straw yellow with shades of green. Very intense and opulent nose, rich notes of rose petals, accompanied by lychees and lime blossoms, also good freshness. Spreads out powerfully on the palate, shows again a lot of rose petals, in addition rich notes of cloves and light pepper, fresh acidity gives tension, multi-layered." Falstaff

      "Bright straw color. Perfumed, aromatic nose hints at Gewürztraminer, dominated by notes of rose petal, grapefruit, cinnamon and nutmeg. Rich, dense and complex, with bright juicy cut lifting the saline flavors of spices and ripe tropical fruit. Finishes long with a whiplash of harmonious acidity and repeating spice and intensely floral nuances. A knockout wine." Vinous

    About the winemakers
    Lis Neris
    Friuli
    Lis Neris

    Alvaro Pecorari, the owner of the winery, dedicated a large part of his time to researching his vineyards and their suitability for the variety. The fact that his winery Lis Neris is today more than ever considered an important protagonist of the Friulian wine scene proves that he succeeded in this in an impressive way.

    Alvaro belongs to a generation of wine producers who, unsatisfied with the region's unexpressive wines, longed for more complexity, structure and personality in the 1980s. At that time he took over the family farm in the municipality of San Lorenzo Isontino and began to dedicate himself to the task of putting the unused high potential of the terroir and the vineyards into a new light.

    The vineyards of Lis Neris extend from the picturesque valleys of the Slovenian border to the right bank of the Isonzo River. The small Isonzo wine region offers the vines very special conditions: The dry wind Bora and mild sea temperatures contribute to the optimal health and ripening of the grapes. The soil structure varies considerably from zone to zone and has a complex geological history. Between alluvial deposits and calcareous gravel, the agronomic measures must be adapted in a sensitive and small-scale way depending on the vineyard and require a great deal of experience and sensitivity.

    After he had full responsibility for the winery and also all the freedom he could get, Alvaro turned the business around and put the exact analysis of the existing sites and grape varieties at the centre of his actions. In an interview he explains: "Ultimately, it is a matter of understanding on which soil and in which micro-situation each individual variety promises the best results, because the diversity of very different vineyard sites requires a variety of grape varieties". Today, his wines bear witness not only to his oenological expertise, but also to his intimate connection with nature. The results, which are very limited in quantity each year, form the basis for a beautiful collection in which each wine reflects its origin in the most authentic way.

    Alvaro Pecorari has divided his range into three segments: For the single-variety wines, the focus is on the typicality of the grape variety. The aromatic profile of international varieties, such as Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay, as well as the autochthonous Friulano, are given the perfect stage in these wines.
    These clearly contoured, primary fruity and refreshing wines honestly embody the traditional and purist style for which the region was once famous.

    Lis Neri's vineyards with older vines are destined for the production of more complex and deeper wines. Thanks to Alvaro's many years of study, the Single Vineyard line is created in selected individual sites and with the most suitable grape varieties. The varietal pure and above average storable wines such as Gris, La Vila or Picol impress with their aromatic complexity, minerality, elegance and structure.

    With the third line, Alvaro is pursuing an approach that is still quite innovative for the region. For the wines Confino or Lis he blends the grape varieties of his best sites and brings impressive wines into the bottle, which embody the unique terroir and compositional talent of the winemaker in a very individual way.

    So if we are able to enjoy better and better wines from Friuli every year, we owe it to winemakers like Alvaro Pecorari. People who, full of meticulousness and a feeling for nature, do their utmost every day to ensure that our joy and enthusiasm for hand-made, terroir-typical wines will never end. SUPERIORE.DE
