DOC FCO Friulano

Together with Ribolla and Pignolo, this is the grape variety that most represents Rosazzo. Especially full-bodied, it has a low acidity level that renders it smooth and soft, with a delicate hint of bitter almonds; in addition, at Ronco delle Betulle, it also acquires deep mineral tones and, in cold vintages, light aromatic notes.
