Ròi

Colli Orientali del Friuli

Ròi is a Friulan word meaning "stream". The wine that bears this name comes from the finest selection of Merlot and Cabernet. Only the best vintages make it into this wine, where power and elegance come together and the grapes combine to become one.

80% merlot
20% cabernet

1984
TRAINING SYSTEM
modified double arched cane and guyot trained
HARVEST PERIOD
end of September - middle of October

hand selected bunches, collected in boxes
HARVEST
in two or three stages to pick the perfectly mature grapes only
WINEMAKING METHOD
maceration on the skins for 25 days with pumping over at various stages at temperatures of between 25 and 28° C. This continues even after alcoholic fermentation in order to improve the cohesion of the extracted polyphenols and to encourage malolactic fermentation

at first racking the wine is put into barrels, where it remains to mature for 12-15 months. The wine is then refined for a long period in the bottle (no less than 2 years) before being sold
