Cherry pink colour. Strawberry and raspberry scent with a full, fresh and lively flavor.

This wine is made by northern Italians who enjoy this with vast gastronomical variety of meals: from gnocchi and tagliatelle with hare sauce, to pork meat and grilled beef; from pasta and beans with pork rinds and prosciutto, to chicken, rabbit and roast duck.  It’s a young wine, here in North Carolina it can go well with cured meats and cheeses enjoyed on a porch, or with bbq in your neighbors backyard.

The place where the Visintini company stands has a history dating back to the Middle Ages 1290. It is located on the hills south of the DOC Friuli Colli Orientali area on the border with the DOC Collio and which borders the provinces of Udine and Gorizia. The various vicissitudes led to the purchase by Domenico Visintini in 1884 of the Castle of Gramogliano, an imposing feudal building which extended with keep and towers over a very large area and which over the centuries was destroyed and rebuilt several times. In 1915, the Castle passed by succession to two of his sons: Umberto. The latter became the legitimate owner of the castle and began farming. In 1973, Umberto thought that the time had come to pass the reins to his son Andrea, who since then would have given impetus and the wine tradition is increasingly valued. In 2002, the company passed into the hands of the sons Oliviero, Cinzia and Palmira, thus continuing the business started many years earlier by their father Andrea.
