A trip in the Northeast of Italy

The hidden gem of Friuli

When someone thinks about Italy, the first places to come to mind are always the same: Rome, Venice, Milan, Florence. But there many hidden gems in Italy, especially for wine lovers. One of these gems, is the Friuli region, bordered on the west by the Veneto region – where is Venice -, on the north by the Alps and Austria, on the east with Slovenia and on the south by the Adriatic Sea.

Friuli is an area of Northeast Italy with its own particular cultural and historical identity. This region has been conquered and occupied by many during the ages, from the city-state of Venice, the Hasburg and the Bourbon during the Middle-Age, to the Austro-Hungarian Empire during Modern history. This historical and cultural mix made Friuli very unique.

climate of the Friulian plain is humid sub-Mediterranean, suitable for growing white wine grapes. That’s why 2.5% of wine produced in Italy comes from this part of the region.

The wines of the region have strong Slavic and Germanic influences. Around 62% of the wine produced in the region falls under a DOC designation – an Italian quality assurance label for Italian food products. The area is known predominantly for its white wines which are considered some of the best examples of Italian wine in that style.[Along with the Veneto and Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol, the Friuli-Venezia Giulia forms the Tre Venezie wine region which ranks with Tuscany and Piedmont as Italy’s world class wine regions.

The winemaking history of the Friuli has been strongly influenced by its history  as an important stops along the Mediterranean spice route from the Byzantine Empire to the trading center of Venice. During the Middle Ages, travelers passing through this area brought grapevines from Macedonia and Anatolia. Under the Habsburg reign, the French grape varieties were introduced, too. During the 19th century, the region served as a major Mediterranean port for the Austro-Hungarian Empire which bought a Teutonic influence to the area.Collavini Winery Italian Wine Thailand italian wine regions italian wine merchants italian wine types italian wine list italian wine names italian wines list italian wine region italian wine grapes italian wine town italian wine crossword italian wine knowledge italian wine regions italian wine list italian wine crossword clue italian wine merchants italian wine glasses italian wine cookies italian wine types italian wine club italian wine grapes top 5 italian wines italian wine wines number 1 italian wine no 1 italian wine italian wine 2007 vintage italian wine 2012 italian wine 2009 vintage italian wine 2007 italian wine 2013 italian wine 2008 italian wine 2010 italian wine 2004 italian wine 2011 italian wine 2009 2 italian brothers wine 3 italian wines 3 italian red wines 3 b italian wines top 3 italian wines italian wine 4 letters italian wine 414 sparkling italian wine 4 letters italian wine region 4 letters italian wine city 4 letters italian wine town 4 letters fizzy italian wine 4 letters italian wine names 4 letters italian for wine 4 letter italian wine italian for wine translation italian for wine shop italian for wine word italian for wine cellar italian for winemaker italian for winery italian for wine glass 4 letter sparkling italian wine italian wine 50 50 dry italian wine 5 letters italian wine food praha 5 best italian wine under 50 5 italian wine 642 italian wine italian wine and food praha 6 6 oz italian wine glasses italian wine 7 letters italian red wine 7 letters 7 italian wine italian wine 8 letters italian wine 8 letters italian wine 9 letters italian wine 90 points sparkling italian wine 9 letters fizzy italian wine 9 letters fizzy italian wine crossword 9 letters 9 letter italian wine italian wine 101 italian wine top 10 italian wine merchants 108 east 16th street italian red wine 101 italian wine top 100 italian wine pairing 101 italian wine under $10 best italian wine under 10 good italian wine under $10 best italian wine under $100

The international popularity of Pinot grigio in the 1980s and 1990s help to change the dynamic of Friuli-Venezia Giulia winemaking. Prior to this time vineyard owners sold their grapes in bulk to co-ops and négociant-like wineries that would blend the grapes together. With the success of Mario Schiopetto in bottling and marketing the product of his own vineyard, other vineyard owners followed suit and began opening up small wineries of their own.

The founder Eugenio Collavini supplied wine to the noble families of Udine and to wine shops. The baton then passed to Giovanni, who worked through two World Wars. At the end of them, the trade boomed while the science of oenology also advanced, giving wines a quality before unknown.

It was Giovanni’s son, Manlio who noticed the first signs of major changes and indeed almost anticipated them. He was one of the first to take Friulian wines abroad. In 1966, the cellar moved to the Castello Zucco-Cuccanea in Corno di Rosazzo, built in 1560.
Manlio was one of the first to believe in Pinot Grigio fermented off the skins, as long ago as 1969, and in 1971, he created Il Grigio, a trend-setting sparkling wine, which was later joined by Ribolla Gialla Brut. Today, Collavini is a family-owned limited company managed by Manlio and his sons Giovanni, Luigi and Eugenio.

The winery environment

The villa of the noble Zucco di Cuccanea family, the currenCollavini White Wine Thailand Friuli Italy Old Worldt head office, is a fine example of a 16th-century fortified residence. The Torretta, the turret on the west-facing wall, was built for the purposes of defence and later became a point of observation from which to monitor the surrounding countryside, a marvellous panorama stretching across the hill country of Rosazzo, Ruttars and Cormons.

Leaving the villa and walking down an old Ribolla Gialla vineyard you reach the wine cellar, where the thousand-year-old farming tradition marries the modern technology.

They also produce some quality red wines, such as the More, a mix of Merlot and Refosco, and the wonderful Merlot dal Pic, a strong tradition Merlot.

The best bunches are taken to the drying room, where low temperatures and ventilation coax from them a magnificent symphony of fragrances, imbuing the wines with savouriness, remarkable body and elegance on the palate.

These are the processes that have led to wines like the multiple award-winning Collio Bianco Broy. The other area of innovation is sparkling winemaking, and in particular the development of what is known today as the “Metodo Collavini”; Their method brought us among the others, Il Prosecco and the experimental Il Grigio Royal.
