Bastianich - Collio Friulano Vigne Orsone 2014 Ml. 750
The deep connection of The Bastianich Family stretches back decades and generations. From early connections with the greatest winemaking families in the 1970s and 1980s, to the promotion of the finest wines Friuli had to offer in their Family Resturants in New York City and beyond... Culminating in the realization of a dream to create great wines of longevity and complexity in their own vineyards. The Bastianich Family has been one of the greatest supporters of Friulian wines in the United States and around the world.
Acquired in 1997, The Bastianich vineyards are unique in their varied position and microclimate.
The original vineyard, located in the communes of Buttrio and Premariacco, lies in the warmest, southernmost zone of Friuli Colli Orientali. These terraced vineyards are warmed by the heat of the Friulian plains and the Adriatic sea.
Re-planted and re-terraced in 2000-2002, these vines are at the height of their quality and production, providing the grapes for our greatest cru wines; Vespa Bianco, Vespa Rosso, Plus and Calabrone.
In Cividale, 10 miles to the north and coooled by mountain breezes, our vineyards here produce the grapes for the fresh, aromatic wines of the Vini Orsone line.
