Main characteristics of Pinot Blanc 

Pinot Blanc is a vine that originates in Burgundy and belongs to the Pinot family, coming from a genetic mutation of Pinot Noir. Despite the worldwide production, its diffusion has been slowed by the fact that Pinot Blanc is very similar to Chardonnay for some characteristics. Pinot Blanc lends itself to being vinified alone and can be blended to other vines for the production of sparkling wines, such as Franciacorta and Trento Doc, adding structure and body to them. The name Pinot comes from the French pin, or pinecone for its cluster shape that with small and compact berries, looks just like a pinecone. Its characteristics are best expressed in the coldest wine-growing areas or where the climatic conditions are constant because it is a grape that suffers particularly from temperature changes. For the possibility of being vinified in purity and blend, vit is considered a ductile vine to obtain in the first case a dry wine and in the second a structured wine with strong aromas. When it is blended to other varieties, it is always preferred the vinification in wood, so that it can have a greater intake of aromas.

Colli Orientali dei Friuli and other appellations 

The DOC Friuli Colli Orientali extends in a territory in the central eastern part of the province of Udine, near the border with the Republic of Slovenia. The soils of the Colli Orientali consist of alternating layers of clay-limestone marl and sandstone, called Ponca in Friuli. The prevalence of marl and sand has led to a rather sweet morphology of the soil, in which the winegrowers were forced to terrace the hills to avoid the consumption of the hills and the undermining of the vines, becoming the main feature of the Colli Orientali del Friuli. This territory has always been recognized as a land of great wines and it is from here that the idea of the great Friulian white wines Superwhites was born, characterized by a perfect gustatory balance with clear and intense aromas ranging from floral to bitter almond notes, as for example you can find the Ribolla Gialla, the Malvasia, the Vitovska and the Friulano. The structure of Colli Orientali wines also allows a long aging over time, such as Pinot Grigio, and Sauvignon e lo Chardonnay. Not to forget, the breadth of Friuli red wines, equally important and valued, characterized by a ruby red color with aromas ranging from herbaceous to spicy. On the palate they are balanced with a note of astringency for the most suited native varieties, such as Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso or Schioppettino.
