Country and Region:
Italy,Friuli Venezia Giulia
Grape Varieties :
Friulano | Ribolla Gialla
The grapes are harvested by hand in boxes, then steeped in a cold horizontal press for eight hours and the must is cleaned through settling. Fermentation takes place in new Allier barriques at controlled temperatures of 14°- 16°C. When the fermentation is over, the wine remains in the barrique to mature for about eight months at a constant temperature. There follows a further long period of refining in the bottle before the wine is released.
The Livon family celebrated their 50th Anniversary by launching the 'Selezioni 50 Anniversary, Collio DOC' in 2014. A blend of two ancient grape varieties, Friulano and Ribolla Gialla, representing the very best of the Collio region.
