Traminer Aromatico Doc Friuli Aquileia
Traminer has traditionally been grown at Viola’s village for more than a century. A portion of our vineyard was re-planted with clones from old vines on sandy soil, where it’s possible to grow the vines ungrafted, without a roo-tstock.
Winemaking: twelve hours low temperature skin contact at 10°C for the grapes from both vineyards; the fruit is then soft-crushed, the must is clarified by settling at low temperature and fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures with regular stirring of the fine lees for about three months; the wine matures in tanks before going into bottle.
Wine: straw yellow with vivid green-gold highlights; the domi-nant note on the nose is rose petals mingling with citrus and ap-ricot; tangily clean, fresh-tasting palate with lingering fruitiness and florality.
