DOCG

In the DOCG there are also two sweet styles: Passito and Vendemmia Tardiva.

Sweet Vendemmia Tardiva has been a part of the area's wine production for centuries. The grapes used to make this late harvest wine were traditionally harvested on Saint Martin's Day (November 11).

About

Friularo is the local name for the grape Raboso. Raboso translates locally to "rabid" or "aggressive".

Veneto

Veneto is famous for its capital Venezia, and the wines Prosecco, Soave, and Amarone.

The Ideal Glass

The Bordeaux glass is perfect for a good bodied red wine.

It is taller than other red wine glasses, and has a slimmer bowl.

The large size of the glass allows the fruit bouquet to develop. It smooths out rough edges, plays down tannins, and allows the wines to achieve balance.

The slimmer bowl sends the wine directly to the back of the mouth for maximum taste.

Alcohol can be addictive. Drink in moderation.
