Straw yellow with some greenish reflections, it is clean, dry, with aromas of green pear, white peach, and herbal notes.

It accompanies the whole meal from appetizers, especially if based on vegetables and fish, to pasta and risotto with surprising affinity with white meats.  This is one of the few wines that can stand up to challenging pairings like green beans, artichokes, cabbage, and Brussels sprouts.

The Friulano is THE white wine of choice in Friuli.  Also known as Sauvignonasse, this lean, dry, herbal white is often mistaken for Sauvignon Blanc. The classic white wine of the region, pure expression of the territory, has written the history of the autochthonous Friulian wines, hence the name that characterizes its origin. It is a wine of extreme ductility, ready to drink but capable of aging well.

Vinified in white after a short maceration and aged exclusively in steel.  Called by the producer Bon Blanc, as this is precisely what it is: a good white wine!

Gori Agricola

Gori Winery is situated in Nimis, known as Castrum Nemas since the 6th Century, in the northernmost point of the “Colli Orientali” of Friuli. The estate’s vineyards cover 12 hectares on the rolling hills.

Piero Gori, founder of the winery, in 2009 began the realization of one of his dreams. The love and the passion for his homeland inspired the will of combining innovation with tradition. The meticulous attention towards quality and the respect and valorization of the surrounding environment create a modern, family run, winery.

The Gori family

The vineyards were planted in 2009 and 2010 with a specific objective: to enhance in the best way the peculiarities of the individual vineyards in the area.

The mountains defend the area from the cold northern winds and the proximity of the plain favors the nocturnal temperature variations, essential for the development of grape aromas.

The care and attention during the phases of production ensure that the grapes produced enhance their characteristics to the maximum.

The entire winecellar is the most modern and innovative one could conceive; built on three levels, it exploits the gravitational force and avoids unnecessary stress on grapes and wines.

After the harvest, the grapes arrive at LEVEL ONE where the de-stemming phase takes place, a technique used to separate the grapes from the stalk.

The grapes, at this point de-stemmed, are lowered to the lower level using the force of gravity in order to avoid unnecessary stress that could compromise quality.

The very important phase of temperature-controlled vinification takes place at LEVEL ZERO.

On this level there is also the bottling plant.

At the underground level there is the aging cellar, dug inside the hill which exploits the natural level of humidity that allows the wine to complete its maturation.

Still using the natural force of gravity, the wine is transferred inside the French oak barrels. The 500 liter tonneau and the 15 to 40 hectoliters barrels help the wine in its maturation to bring it to express the best quality.
