This is a family owned estate with 28 ha of vines in the Dolegna district of Collio. Established in 1930 when Daniele Venica purchased Ronco del Cero. Today the winery is one of Friuli's most well known and respected estates. Giampaolo now has taken over the estate from his father Gianni and uncle Giorgio. The winery is known for highly textural and aromatic whites that use little to no wood in the production of their wines. Varieties of Sauvignon Blanc, Friulano, Pinot Grigio, Malvasia, Ribolla Gialla, Traminer and Chardonnay are planted to white wine production. Varieties of Refosco, Merlot and Cabernet Franc are planted to red wine production.
This elegant and structured wine's yellow stone fruit, almond, Spanish broom and Alpine herb aromas take shape in the glass. The full-bodied palate delivers ripe yellow apple, juicy citrus and toasted almond flavors. A savory mineral note caps off the finish.
