About this winery

Attems is a name that encompasses the history of wine in Friuli Venezia Giulia. Indeed there is documentation that confirms ownership of land dedicated to viticulture in Collio by the Attems dynasty dating as far back as 1106, whereas the production of Ribolla Gialla and Refosco can be seen listed in the 1764 general ledgers.

Production notes

The must obtained from the soft pressing of the grapes is left to rest for 24-48 hours. Subsequently, on clear must, a low temperature (15-17°C) alcoholic fermentation is allowed to take place in steel vats and wooden barriques (10%) for 15 days. Following the fermentation, the wine rests for four months on noble lees often kept in suspension.

Tasting notes

The wine is a very luminous, light straw yellow. The bouquet, inviting and well-defined, releases crisp citrus scents that alternate with ripe peach and mango notes further enriched with elegant floral impressions of spring flowers and a spiced vanilla and white tea finish. The supple and complex palate offers a balanced freshness and notable sapidity.
