Collio Bianco from the Ferlat winery is a pure Pinot Bianco that perfectly represents the terroir from which it comes. The grapes are selected by hand and fermentation takes place spontaneously with the sole use of indigenous yeasts while refinement proceeds in steel tanks. The bright straw yellow colour introduces aromas of fruit and white flowers with light spicy hints. The taste is agile, full, rich, balanced and long
The Collio Bianco by Ferlat, a personal and irresistible interpretation of the area, is born in the Collio Friulano area. The hills of this area undoubtedly represent one of the most vocated areas in the world for the cultivation of white grape varieties. Some of the ingredients that concur in determining the viticultural excellence of this area lie in its peculiar pedo-climatic aspect. As far as the soil is concerned, the soils consist of the so-called 'ponca', a characteristic type of soil made up of alternating layers of marl and sandstone, ideal for viticulture. The climate, on the other hand, is distinguished by the concomitant presence of the Adriatic breezes and the considerable temperature excursions due to the proximity of the Alpine chain.
Ferlat Collio Bianco is a 100% Pinot Bianco from vines that are approximately 45 years old and cultivated according to certified organic farming principles. After harvesting, the grapes are destemmed and crushed, with the resulting must undergoing a brief 24-hour skin contact, followed by soft pressing. The ensuing alcoholic fermentation takes place in steel tanks due to the intervention of the yeasts naturally present on the skins and in the cellar environment. Subsequently, the wine undergoes complete and spontaneous malolactic fermentation and then matures several months on its fine lees before bottling.
Collio Bianco Ferlat has a brilliant straw yellow colour. Intense fruity and floral hints strike the nose, with elegant notes of white flowers, citrus and aniseed that meet fragrant notes of hazelnut and bread crust. Lively, savoury and fresh in the mouth, with a long persistence.
