Picolit DOCG (Dessert wine)
One of the Friulian Enologic prides. In Torre Rosazza we can count on the greatest extension of "Picolit dei Colli Orientali del Friuli" vineyards. This wine possesses a special and symbolic value that underlines a deep connection with the area, that has been established by the estate since its origins. Picolit vineyards are scattered all across the estate, in areas with greater exposure to the south and west. One of our first vineyards has been cultivated in Picolit since 1978.
At least 24 months in French oak tonneaux
Colline orientali del Friuli (Manzano Hills)
The grapes are harvested late by hand in the second / third decade of September and then placed in the drying room: drying takes about 60 days. In this period the grapes lose about 40% of their weight. Then, the bunches are pressed whole and the must thus obtained carries out a static decantation. It ferments part in stainless steel tanks and part in oak barrels. This is followed by aging in French oak tonneaux for at least two years.
