In the heart of Friuli, steeped in history as it is, Azienda Agricola Catullio grow their native grapes with passion and care. The vineyards are situated in the best countryside areas of Aquileia and Sdricca di Manzano, a village by the Natisone River.
Ca’Tullio winery was established at the end of the nineteenth century and was to experience an astounding development in farming and winemaking in 1928, with the Tullio family.
Vineyard & Vinification Note
The vineyards cover several terroirs within the DOC Friuli Aquileia and DOC Friuli Colli Orientali areas. The DOC Friuli Aquileia territory is blessed by a unique and favourable microclimate due to its geographical position: the Julian Alps in the background protect the vines from the cold winds of the north, and the Adriatic sea in front of them considerably lowers the temperatures that reach below zero in some short periods of the year.
The area of the DOC Friuli Colli Orientali includes the range of hill in the Province of Udine, where there are particular pedoclimatic conditions. In these areas, the vines have adapted well, producing excellent quality results.
Winemaking: Traditional white wine vinification, soft-crushing of the bunches, must clarification by settling at low temperature and fermentation in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures using selected yeasts. Secondary fermentation in stainless steel tanks using the Charmat method, on the lees for about two months. Sterile filtration and bottling
Brilliant straw yellow colour, with fine and persistent bubbles. Soft pleasant fruity aromas
