Origin: Friuli, Italy
Grapes: Pinot Grigio

From one of the pioneers of long macerations white wines in Oslavia, Friuli, alongside with Radikon and Gravner, Dario Princic wines are a pure expression of this new wave of orange wines, full bodied, incredibly complex and energetic.

Azienda Agricola Dario Princic is located in Oslavia in Friuli-Venezia Giulia, very close to the Slovenian border. Princic’s wines have the same feel as those of La Stoppa and Valentini: totally unfiltered and minimally sulphured, they taste of the earth, of rock salts and bitter stony fruits, in other words edgily natural. This may not be everyone’s cup of tea (or Sauvignon), but thank goodness in an era of branding and conformity that we have the opportunity to dance on the wilder shores of winemaking.

A dark pink-amber colour, with exotic and ripe fruits, mutating all the time. Apricot skin, mandarin and ginger surge across the tongue and there's a touch of astringency to remind you of the original grape. Not just a great Pinot Grigio, a wine reeking (in the classiest sense) of individuality.

Manual harvested,  fermented in open top wood and chestnut fermenters with indigenous yeast, macerated for 7 days on skins. Matured for 2 and half years in tonneaux, decanted to stainless steel and then to bottle to rest. No filtration and no sulphur added until bottling. Organic.


Serve at 12 degrees C.
