Gilbert Gaillard: GOLD
The estates history dates back to 1648 when the Roman Empire awarded 600 hectares to the Locatelli family. Nearly 400 years later and Marta Locatelli has taken the reigns, continuing the tradition of sustainable farming, including 75 hectares of grape vines including some of the rarest varieties in Italy.
The Villa Locatelli line is dynamic, suitable for every occasion, expressing the freshness and liveliness of the Friuli Isonzo DOC area.
These 7 hectares of Friulano were planted in 1987 and 2007 on a stoney red clay rich in aluminum and iron oxides.
A short, cold maceration and slow fermentation preserves the wines delicate flavours. The wine is then left to rest in stainless steel tank for 5 months.
It pours straw yellow with golden hues. Wildflower dominates the nose while a rich almond and honey is expressed on the palate and vegetal geranium leaf and hay aromas come with time in the glass. Dry, medium-bodied, well-balanced bitter almond finish.
