Blanc de Bianca is dedicated to the producer’s mother, Bianca.  It is a wine to be drunk young, floral, fresh, with a clean, citrusy aftertaste.

The acidity in the wine would be magic against deep fried seafood, lemon caper veal piccata, fresh salads or mussels in a white wine garlic sauce.

An ancient white variety from northern Italy, bordering Slovenia. Rarely seen elsewhere, Ribolla Gialla wines are typically light in body and offer fruity, floral aromas, as well as bright acidity.

Producer's notes:  Native Friulian grape known in 1300 and present at the table of the Doge of Venice. In the hills it finds its optimal location, it loves sunny and dry soils. Vinified in white and only in steel it gives us a straightforward, fresh, immediate wine, with a very floral, elegant and captivating scent.

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.
