Producer: Torre Rosazza
In the Colli Orientali del Friuli, and especially in Torre Rosazza, the growing of grapevines has a very ancient history. Already known in Roman times, grapes were also grown in the Middle Ages, along with other crops such as olives and grains. In those years, wine was a commodity or a bargaining chip that demonstrated a family’s wealth.
Noble elegance. The history of Torre Rosazza has been tied to the Antonini family, part of the Udine nobility, since the 1600s. Already the lords of the agricultural estate, the Antonini restored the medieval tower and built the villa that became their home in the hills: Turris Rosacea.
At Torre Rosazza we make fresh, contemporary Friuli wines, obtained through the meticulous care of the vineyards and attention to preserving the typical characteristics of each individual variety. All this so that we can give all the beauty and complexity of our land back to those who drink them.
Tasting Note: This Italian white wine fills the nose with a distinct floral scent that evolves into fruity notes with hints of ripe pears, peaches and apples. On the palate, this wine is soft, flattering and impresses with a very good body and a pleasant, filigree acidity, which ensures plenty of freshness. All in all, this is a wonderfully balanced white wine with a beautiful persistence.
