COLLIO FRIULANO

The local wine for everyone. From vineyards on the highest part of the hill, just a few bunches on each plant offer excellent ripening every year.
The density in the glass and the sweet scents of mature fruit and meadow flowers are a prelude to a soft, full and intense flavour.
The typical hint of almond and the mineral impression of Ruttàrs complete a tableau of light, warmth and substance that satisfy the palate and warm the heart.

Friulano is the most typical white wine of the Region. Rich, round and soft by nature, on Ruttàrs’ hill it becomes particularly fresh and salty, so to be less immediate when young but exciting after some years of rest inside the bottle.
