Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Grigio
Sustainable, practicing organic
Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Italy
From the importer-
Farming practices are sustainable (lutte raisonné) with a staunch commitment to operating as organically as possible. Vine training methods are in keeping with tradition- Capuccina at 3000 vines per ha and Guyot at 6000 vines per ha. Grapes are de-stemmed and with a natural fermentation on the skins occurring in stainless steel tanks at warmer temperatures,a round 24 C. Post fermentation maceration on
skins lasted about 90 days. The wine is unfiltered and racked twice
prior to bottling.
Aransat is Friulian slang for orange. Three generations with deep ties to the local area, Cormons, 12 kilometers from the Slovenian border. This is a family affair with the younger generation inspired to take over for their parents after enjoying a bottle of Friulano in the family vineyard at age 14. This is Italy after all. Small and maintaining a human scale, the estate covers a total of 18 hectares alongside Mount Quarin. The family focuses on farming indigenous varieties and is committed to a natural lifestyle that is in harmony with its surroundings.
