    Winery Overview

    The Perusini vineyards are one of the 50 happy few listed by Luigi Veronelli in “I vignaioli storici” (The Italian Wine-growers Bible). Today the estate is run by Giampaolo’s daughter, Teresa, an art historian like her uncle, but also a keen cultivator who divides her time between her studies and running the estate together with her husband Giacomo de Pace and her three sons. For centuries, the hills of Gramogliano have been renowned, like Rosazzo and Rocca Bernarda, not just for their natural beauty, but also for the terrain, position and microclimate that make up the cru hors classe of Friuli’s Colli Orientali.

    Vinification

    The grapes were harvested by hand and gently pressed in a pneumatic press (Bucher), and cooled during the process with dry ice. With the use of specially selected yeasts the vinification took place in modern stainless steel tanks with the temperature of fermentation controlled below 20° C. For the following 6 months the wine was left in contact with the fine lees.
