Historic DOCG of Friuli tells the story of Nimis, the town where the Ramandolo Cru is located; decades of hard work in selecting and enhancing the grape variety consecrate this wine among the main visiting cards of Friulian enology.

Golden yellow, on the nose apricot jam, acacia honey and a note of freshness make it captivating. Full and fresh on the palate, it loves blue and spicy cheeses. Gnocchi and pumpkin soups together with fruit-based desserts complete the combination.

Ramandolo DOCG is a sweetish or sweet, golden, dessert wine, made from the Verduzzo Friuliano grape (100%), locally known as Verduzzo Giallo.  It is one of the four DOCG-classified wine of the main zone Friuli-Venezia Giulia.

Within the vinification process, the grapes are allowed to dry, either on the vine or in special drying rooms, as they get “the noble rot” (botrytis cinerea), or, in Italian, “muffa nobile”. Handpicking is almost mandatory, since the vineyards are rather steep.

Friuli Colli Orientali Ramandolo DOCG is produced in the northern part of the zone, in the municipalities of Nimis and of Tarcento, in the province of Udine, where Monte Bernardia (1732m) offers protection against the cold wind from the Alps. The name Ramandolo refers to a village in the municipality of Nimis.

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.

organic sign

In 2016 the GORI winery began to adopt a business management system capable of adapting to local conditions, bringing positive effects from an environmental point of view and capable of protecting consumers. This system, called Organic Agriculture, is based in particular on the reduction of the intake of synthetic chemicals in the vineyard (fertilizers, herbicides, anicryptogams, insecticides and pesticides in general), eliminating the use of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and favoring at the same mechanical or manual processing.
After the defined period of “conversion”, the company, starting from the 2019 harvest, began producing Organic Wines following a certification process carried out by an external body (ICEA).
