FRIULI COLLI ORIENTALI
DENOMINAZIONE DI ORIGINE CONTROLLATA
From the precious red berried D.O.C. vines, among the acacia and oak woods of the Colli Orientali del Friuli, there is and old piece of land called Selenard. We gave this name to this red blended wine. Ruby red wine with deep violet reflections. It should be served with red meats, game ham and spicy cheeses at 14-16°C. It is advisable to open the bottle at least one hour before serving.
Vinification: the harvested grapes, usually Merrlot, Refosco dal peduncolo rosso, Schioppettino and Pignolo, are selected,harvested, de-stemmed, crushed and left to ferment at a controlled temperature (of around 28°C) with the addition of selected yeasts which improve the wine’s fragrance and taste expression. After around 10-15 days, according to the level of extraction obtained, the grapes are soft-pressed. Refining of each single wine are then further blended in different percent and refined together for a long period before bottling.
