      San Zuan is an attractive, medium-bodied wine made from 100% Friulano grapes. Complex bouquet of white peaches and pears, flowers and a subtle earthiness. Full and round on the palate, yet elegant, with a certain minerality, with length and beautiful ageing potential. SUPERIORE.DE

    • "Sol" Chardonnay Friuli Colli Orientali DOC 2017

      “Sol” Chardonnay Friuli Colli Orientali DOC 2017

      Slightly reductive nose with hints of great white Burgundy. Reminiscent of fruit basket, mint, slate, crushed rock 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 dedicate air, time and the necessary attention, and then one will be princely rewarded! SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2017 Ronco del Gnemiz Chardonnay Friuli Colli Orientali Sol was a beauty, one of only a handful of Chardonnay wines from Italy that can stand up to world-class competition. Beautifully taut, chiseled and mineral, it provided a perfect start to the meal, leaving the palate feeling fresh and lifted and ready to encounter more food and wine. Proprietor Serena Palazzolo and Christian Patat of Ronco del Gnemiz are huge fans of Miani’s wines (Patat and Miani owner Enzo Pontoni have long worked together, too), so you can understand the level of wine quality we’re talking here."

      Powerful yellow-green, dense bouquet packed with opulent fruit aromas. On the palate complex, juicy and very well integrated wood note. Despite its extroverted nature, Sauvignon Sol never loses its essential minerality and elegance. Possesses class, length and potential. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2015 Sauvignon Sol bristles with energy, tension and nuance. The interplay of green, grassy Sauvignon aromatics and the ripeness of the year results in a wonderfully complex wine that has a lot to offer. All the elements fall into place in this effortless, hugely delicious Sauvignon from Ronco del Gnemiz. The Sol emerges from vines in San Giovanni al Natisone." Antonio Galloni

    About the winemakersRonco del GnemizFriuli
    Ronco del Gnemiz

    Since it was taken over in 1964, the small, ecologically managed Ronco del Gnemiz winery, situated in a beautiful natural setting in the immediate vicinity of Udine, has been owned by the Palazzolo family. The current owners, Serena Palazzolo and her husband Christian Patat, produce consistently straightforward, distinctive, but strictly limited top-quality wines on the estate, which has only 6.5 hectares of vineyards and is divided into the San Giovanni al Natisone and Manzano zones. The range of products is often highly rated by wine critics and has helped the winery to achieve international recognition over the years.

    The vineyards, which are cultivated by well-trained staff and are oriented towards the southwest, and the exemplary work in the cellar have been certified by the ERSA agency of the Friuli Venezia Giulia region for high ecological standards. In summer, the heat is tempered by a fresh sea breeze. This season is also characterized by considerable temperature variations between day and night. The spring usually proves to be humid and warm. In the mostly cold and low-precipitation winters, the Alps in the north offer protection to the vines. The growing area is often affected by heavy rainfall, which is made bearable by the north winds Bora in autumn and winter and the breezes Borina in late spring and summer. The soils consist mostly 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 flavor. They are treated as gently as possible to preserve their natural characteristics. This is how the cellar of Ronco del Gnemiz produces classic, elegant and long-lasting wines. The white grapes are gently pressed, insoluble components are cold-separated and fermentation takes place almost without exception (not malolactic) in wooden barrels. The red berries macerate in stainless steel vats. The best of their color also spend a long time in French oak barrels.

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