      “Sol” Chardonnay Colli Orientali del Friuli DOC 2017

      Slightly reductive nose with hints of great white Burgundy. Reminiscent of fruit basket, mint, slate, crushed stone and white pepper. The grapes for this great Chardonnay come from vines over 60 years old and this is reflected in the depth and complexity of the wine. Sol Chardonnay is an intellectual wine to which one should devote air, time and the necessary attention, and then one is princely rewarded! SUPERIORE.DE

    About the winemakers
    Ronco del Gnemiz
    Friuli
    Ronco del Gnemiz

    The Ronco del Gnemiz winery has been owned by the Palazzolo family since it was taken over in 1964. It is a small, ecologically managed winery located in a beautiful natural setting in the immediate vicinity of Udine. Today's owners, Serena Palazzolo and her husband Christian Patat, with the advice of the oenologist Andrea Pittana, produce, in the 14-hectare vineyard divided into the San Giovanni al Natisone and Manzano areas, straight and distinctive, yet strictly limited, wines of the highest quality. The range is often highly rated by wine critics and over the years has helped the winery to achieve international recognition.

    The south-west facing vineyards, managed by well-trained staff, and the exemplary work in the cellar were certified by the Friuli Venezia Giulia agency ERSA because of their high ecological standards. In summer the heat is softened by a fresh sea breeze. This season is also characterised by considerable temperature fluctuations between day and night. Spring is usually humid and warm. In winter, which is mostly cold and low in precipitation, the Alps in the north provide protection for the vines. The growing area is frequently affected by heavy rainfall, which is bearable in autumn and winter due to the north winds Bora and in late spring and summer due to the Borina breezes. The soils usually consist of clay and marl interspersed with calcium.

    The grapes of the small winery located in the Colli Orientali del Friuli are aromatic and rich in flavour. They are treated as carefully as possible so that they retain their natural characteristics. This is how the Ronco del Gnemiz cellar produces classic, elegant and long-lasting wines. The white grapes are gently pressed, insoluble components are cold separated and the fermentation takes place almost without exception (not malolactic) in wooden barrels. The red berries macerate in stainless steel containers. The best of their colour also spend a long time in French oak barrels.

    Serena Palazzolo and her team are not lovers of fashion wines. Instead, they have been improving their products uncompromisingly for years and saying about themselves: "Maybe we are a bit like our wines - strict but true". Particularly in recent times, the quality of the estate has been further improved, as can be seen, for example, from the Sauvignon Bianco Sol. But Ronco del Gnemiz has also long been one of the best red wine houses in the north-eastern Italian region. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Serena Palazzolo's winery Ronco del Gnemiz has had a significant visibility for more than 15 years, but above all the wines have improved in quality over the past few years, in keeping with the collaboration with two extremely talented ones - the neighbour Nicola Manferrari of the Borgo del Tiglio winery and now the winemaker Roberto Cipresso."Robert Parker
