The Tocai Friulano grapes for this wine are grown in the D.O.C. Friuli Isonzo, a flat area of Friuli, near the D.O.C. Collio and the border with Slovenia. Manual harvest took place at the beginning of September, 2014. Once the must reaches the winery, after clarification, it is fermented at controlled temperatures for about 20 to 25 days. All winemaking and refinement takes place in stainless steel tanks. After approximately six months, the wine is ready to be bottled and enjoyed, with all its fruity and flowery aromas.
“Ceròu” is the old name of area where winery owner Mariano Ascevi first planted vines in the 1970s. He transformed what was mostly forest into vineyards through major excavation work, including the removal of old bombs from the First World War.
Served chilled, it is delightful as an aperitif, served with light hors d’oeurves and appetizers, or with fish dishes and white meats.
