This wine is the valued result of the careful and exclusive selection of grapes of the Picolit variety, grown on the hillsides of Bosco Romagno in the district of Cividale del Friuli. The grapes are left to wither in small chests for about three months. The wine is refined, 50% in steel tubs and 50% in small oak casks. It is a strong, golden straw-yellow colour with a greenish reflection, and has a strong yet delicate aroma that is reminiscent of fruit in syrup, and honey. It has a rich, very long-lasting taste.

The producer

Rodaro is a small rural company in the heart of Colli Orientali del Friuli, north-east of Italy. The Rodaro family devoted themselves to grapevines cultivation since 1846. For almost a century the wine produced was sold by the family, which at that time ran a small rural osteria. They had to wait until the introduction of a tractor and several pieces of machinery in the 1960s before they could fully exploit the potential of their vineyard. In fact, up until this period all work in the vineyard was carried out by hand. The family's love of the land and their desire to do better has seen an increase not only in the amount of wine produced, but also in its quality. Their working techniques take into consideration two important factors for the production of quality wines: modern equipment and ancient wine-making traditions, with the result of a typically varied collection of wines that are highly individual for the area they come from and can often be aged for a long time. The company has a vine-growing area of about 60 hectares and all the grapevines are situated in best position, with a planting density of 4,000 - 5,000 vines per hectare. They are cultivated according to the traditional "cappuccina" system with 8 - 10 fruit-bearing buds per vine. The company also runs a small nursery where several varieties of vine in danger of extinction are raised. Buds are collected for breeding purposes from some of the oldest vineyards in the area. This practice means that species of vine which would otherwise no longer exist can be studied and cultivated.
