Blog: Friuli-Venezia-Giulia


Wine region

In Friuli, which has rightly been pampered by markets and wine popes in recent years, the real viticultural revolution is perhaps yet to come. Italy's easternmost wine-growing region, which wraps itself in a crescent shape around the gold of Trieste, reflects like no other the contradiction between centuries-old traditions of viticulture and the history of quality wine-growing that dates back only a few decades.

The region, whose vineyards - with the exception of the Gorizia area - were historically planted mainly with red varieties - for as late as the 1960s, almost half of the production was Merlot - has acquired in a few years a solid reputation as a supplier of high quality white wines that have found their lovers in Italy, but also abroad.

The region's winemakers began to turn their attention to the identity of their own wines, focusing more on terroir-based white blends, and again, as in the old days, on the red varieties, which this time, however, no longer come across as thin, drinkable everyday wines, but as dense and structurally accentuated grapes.

Merlot in particular, once the region's cellar child, has reached a level that is causing a stir with the products of Livio Felluga, Villa Russiz and others. The real sensation, however, is the autochthonous grape varieties such as Schioppettino, Refosco and Pignolo, which in some wineries are at such a spectacular level that they should be an excellent starting point for the post-international era.
