The Ideal Glass

The Montrachet glass is perfect for full-bodied white wines such as:

The wide bowl steers the wine to the sensitive parts of the tongue, ensuring that the acidity creates a harmonious balance with the sweet aromas of aged wines.

The wide bowl allows the full bouquet of aromas to develop, and minimise the risk for it to be over-concentrated.

About Rosazzo DOCG

Rosazzo was a subzone of Friuli Colli Orientali DOC.

In 2011 it was established as a separate DOCG.

Rosazzo is a blend of several grapes where the most important is Friulano:

Friuli-Venezia Giulia

Friuli-Venezia Giulia is located in Nort East Italy. The capital is Trieste.

The region is best known for its white wines like Friulano, Pinot Grigio, and Prosecco.

A Perfect Wine Growing Climate

The climate in Friuli-Venezia Giulia is influenced by both the Alps and the Sea.

The Julian Alps in the north provide shelter from the cold winds, while both hot sommers and cold winters are tempered by the Adreatic Sea.

This even climate allows the grapes to develop balanced acidity and strong flavors.
