The name “Agnul” (Friulian translation of Angelo) is dedicated to our winery founder, Angelo Pascolo. This is our most important, complex and long-ageing white wine. It’s the authentic expression of Ruttars hill: freshness and elegance with minerality which make the taste lively even after 8-10 years from harvest.
