Wine Language : English
Picolit has a noble Friulian heritage and is the oldest indigenous known variety. Production is very small due to the requirement of semi-barren harsh soil which only yields 4 tons per hectare.
The harvest takes place in the late autumn when the grapes are over mature. Every bunch is picked by expert hand and placed with care on crates for wilting and drying. During this process, the grapes loose water and increase sugar content. This process in Italian is called “appassimento”; in French “passerillage”.
This family of wines is known as “passito” or “vin santo” in Tuscany.
We press Picolit in middle December and the must ferments until March-April. After fermenting and aging we obtain a complex wine with an intense gold colour.
The bouquet is warm and delicate with exotic fruits notes predominated by chestnuts and prunes.
On the palate Picolit is full and rich, smooth warm, mellow. The sweetness of this wine yields to a slightly tart aftertaste with a long and persistent almond scent.

PURITY 100% Picolit
ALCOHOL CONTENT 15% vol.
TOTAL ACIDITY less than 5 gr/lt
PRESERVATION Up to 10 years
SERVING TEMPERATURE Picolit is a excellent wine for any meal and is served best at a temperature of 16 °C (61 °F)
