Traminer Aromatico

VIOLA TRAMINER AROMATICO-CA'TULLIO

D.O.C. FRIULI AQUILEIA



GRAPES: Traminer Aromatico

WINEMAKING: twelve hours low temperature skin contact at 10°C for the grapes from both vineyards; the fruit is then soft-crushed, the must is clarified by settling at low temperature and fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures with regular stirring of the fine lees for about three months; the wine matures in tanks before going into bottle.

WINE: straw yellow with vivid green-gold highlights; the dominant note on the nose is rose petals mingling with citrus and apricot; tangily clean, fresh-tasting palate with lingering fruitiness and florality.

VINEYARD: located in Aquileia (UD) in Friuli Venezia Giulia (Northern Italy) Traminer has traditionally been grown at Viola’s village for more than a century; its five hectares under vine were replanted in 2004 with clones from old vines on sandy soil, which means that even today, it is possible to grow the vines ungrafted, without a rootstock; two further hectares were planted in 1992, again on sandy soil, and the average yield per hectare is 60-65 quintals of grapes.

FOOD MATCHING: ideal as an accompaniment for starters or seafood-based dishes as well as white meats; serve at temperature of 10-12°C.
