Collio Bianco 2019 Raccaro

Variety: Friulano, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Grigio

The Raccaro vineyards cover an area of ​​6.5 hectares on the slopes of Mount Quarin, in the municipality of Cormons, and in the province of Gorizia.

The soil is composed of a combination of sandstone marls, locally called Ponka. A complex name that indicates the set of clay and sedimented calcium fractions, punctuated by a large quantity of marine fossils, which deposited on the bottom of what, which 45 million years ago was a sea.

The particular structure of the soil gives, in particular to white wines, an excellent structure made of uncommon freshness and minerality, together with the ability to develop a good alcoholic degree.

After the harvest, carried out manually, and keeping the individual varieties separate, the grapes, as soon as they reach the cellar, make a cold maceration. Then it ferments in stainless steel containers at controlled temperature.

Once the respective fermentations are finished, in November they proceed to cutting and let the whole mass hone together in stainless steel containers until the following spring.

Collio Bianco 2019 Raccaro

Intense straw yellow color.

The nose immediately shows the class of the great vintage, with a variety of wonderful aromas, in intensity, quality and. and certain quantity. We observe the flowers, with broom, jasmine, mimosa and elderberry. Of the fruits the peach, the apricot and the mango, of the vegetables the hay and for the dried fruit the almond. The zest of dried citrus fruits and locust honey also embellish the whole in this vintage. There are no doubts, the perfumes indicate the constancy and at the same time the perspective.

On the palate it is copious in the sip, as refined in the structure. The Americans would say Wow, opening their eyes wide. The silence that follows is for smug smiles and contemplating the work of art. Because this is: a masterpiece! To want to enunciate them, we have the acidity to give rigor and the minerality to temper the sip. Here is the added value of the ponka, which that long-time winemaker, Dario, is admirably able to satisfy. And then the softness, to give velvet and warmth. Aromas of dried fruit and marine notes run from the palate.

The peculiarity of its wines is that of maintaining this sumptuous balance for many years. That’s right, and without ever giving the impression of being a “tired” wine.

Raccaro is considered by the most expert and selective critics to be one of the best in Friuli, therefore in Italy.
