Friuli-Venezia-Giulia (Colli Orientali Del Friuli)

Friuli-Venezia-GiuliaFriuli-Venezia-Giulia, in northwestern Italy, accounts forConte d'Attimis-Maniago Wine Cellar 42 percent of the country's wine production, but its offerings are equal in quality to the more prominent wines of Tuscany and Piemonte. The region is composed of many different subzones. Colli Orientali is recognized mainly for its white wine production that utilizes both native and international varietals. White native varietals include Ribolla Gialla, Tocai, Verduzzo, and Picolit; red natives include Refosco, Pignolo, Schiopettino (Ribolla Nera), and Tarceleghe; Italian varietals include Muller Thurgau, Traminer, Aromatico, Reisling, Pinot Bianco, and Pinot Grigio. Many international varietals like Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc are produced in purezza (made from only one type of grape) or, more important, in blends featuring combinations of Italian, native, and international varietals. Don't be afraid of seeing archaic vintages on whites from this region! Producers aim to produce whites that reach maturity four years after their vintage date. And-with the exception of wines grown in the Grave del Friuli-the estates are quite small, densely planted, and hard piled. The focus is thus on quality, not quantity, and prices will reflect this approach. Producers are currently concentrating on developing greater international recognition for their wine production.

Sanct Valentin Sauvignon

Our Estate is located in Buttrio, 12 kilometers south of Udine, in the district of the Colli Orientali del Friuli, a land of gently rolling hills known for its superior wines. The Estate unfolds across 110 hectares, nearly all covered with vineyards, and has belonged to our family for more than 500 years.

The ancient records filed in our family archives contain many interesting references such as how in 1140, ten Buttrio farming contracts were donated to a Benedictine monastery so that the monks could make wine and oil. Until just a few years, the Estate still held another ten contracts.

We are especially proud of using only grapes produced from our vines, 70% of which are vines grown in our vineyards from selected cloning on our Estate.  These vines are therefore perfectly suited to the environment and produce truly typical wines. A “great” wine can, of course, only come from a “great” vineyard.
