WINE-MAKING AND REFINEMENT
From marl-clayey soils, schioppettino grapes harvested by hand, between the end of September and the beginning of October with collection in crates and careful selection of the grapes. Destemming, inoculation of selected indigenous yeasts, fermentation on the skins for 8-10 days with regular pumping over, racking with soft pressing. Refine in bottle for 6 months. The production is very limited: only 1500 bottles a year.
YOU'LL LOVE IT FOR...
the pleasantness of the sip.
The company is located in Friuli Venezia Giulia, in Dolegna del Collio (in the province of Gorizia) where viticulture has been at home for centuries. We are on the hills southeast of Cividale, close to the border with Slovenia. Here, native vines such as Schioppettino and Ribolla Gialla are grown.
The area is that of the Colli Orientali del Friuli. These are reliefs of altitudes between 100 and 350 meters above sea level, homogeneous both for climatic conditions and for geological origin. In distant times (35-55 million years ago) the Friuli plain was invaded by the sea and the coasts were almost close to the current Julian Pre-Alps. On the bottom of this archaic lagoon, over the millennia, a slow process of sedimentation took place which gave rise to imposing formations which, with the retreat of the sea, emerged from the waters.
These deposits of Eocene origin appear today as an alternation of layers of marls (calcareous clays) and sandstones (calcified sands) with a very typical appearance. Land extraordinarily suited to viticulture due to their position and composition.
The Casella winery was founded in 1960 in the heart of the Colli Orientali del Friuli, when Francesco Casella began to devote himself with great commitment to viticulture. His son Lino continues the business with equal passion, quickly learning the art of winemaking and giving life to what is now the Casella winery.
With the great competence that distinguishes him, Lino over the years has dedicated himself above all to native vines, also cultivating the old vines, with 50 years on his shoulders. Harvest after harvest, in just 3 hectares of vineyards, the winery has achieved a great goal: to best express the typical varieties of the Colli Orientali del Friuli area such as Schioppettino, Tazzelenghe, Ribolla Gialla and Friulano.
In recent years, thanks to the careful care of the grapes in the vineyard, it has been able to use spontaneous fermentation for all white wines, producing wines with an authentic and balanced character.
