Fresh & Fruity
The appellation of Colli and region of Friuli are actually quite optimal for the grape Chardonnay. Although not native to the area, it is widespread now and a celebrated version of Chardonnay. Both fermentation and vinification are done using stainless steel so you get this brilliant fresh minerality that brightens the entire palate while still delivering all that you want from a classic Chardonnay. Notes on both the nose and palate are reminiscent of papaya, lemon balm, dried pineapple, wet flint rocks, peach and honeysuckle.
About the Winery
Built at the end of the sixteenth century, Volpe Pasini is one of the oldest and most renowned wineries in North East Italy, in the heart of the DOC zone of the Colli Orientali of Friuli. Led by a true star of Italian winemaking, Lorenzo Landi, Volpe Pasini’s production philosophy can be condensed into three key words: Originality (provided by the land, unequaled and exclusive), Longevity, and Pleasantness.
