Tenuta Stella is set in an area noted for its hamlets and remote farms that have dotted the rolling hills of the Collio since Roman times. Gorizia's Collio is an area extraordinarily well suited to viticulture because of its unique climate and soil composition.
The land here in the hills of Eastern Friuli is called “Ponca”, its origins dating back to the Eocene epoch, when slow sedimentation of marine areas, with limestone and clay, created this fertile land.
The low yielding Guyot trained vines running along the high altitude terraced vineyards of Tenuta Stella are only treated with organic fertilizer and do not require pesticides.
Indigenous Ribolla Gialla and Malvasia are the true expression of Collio Terroir. www.tenutastellacollio.it
