  • A NEW STYLE FOR COLLIO WINES

    In 2014 Loretto Pali launched a new style of Collio wines being aware that the international trend was moving toward greater elegance and crisp freshness.

    A collaboration was set up with Enrico Paternoster, oenologist from the Trentino Alto Adige region, who is skillfully able to combine freshness and elegance with structure and longevity,  which result in elegant, mineral, lingering and pleasantly refreshing wines with great drinkability.

    HARVEST WITH AN ECO-FRIENDLY OUTLOOK

    We pick the grapes at night time and in the very early morning so as to take advantage of the important temperature range, typical of the area, and guarantee the full expression of the terroir, as well as reduce the grape cooling process energy consumption by over 70%.
    The low yields per hectare (between 40 and 70 q/ha), combined with winegrowing practices that are respectful of the vegetative balance of the vines, ensure grape clusters that are desirably small and a skin/pulp ratio that is optimal for the production of wines...

    The 3 PINOT

    Castello di Spessa is mostly renown for its Pino Nero varieties that grow on the Collio hills in a vineyard dubbed “vineyard of the 3 Pinot”, supervised by internationally recognised agronomist, Marco Simonit, who has devised an original vine pruning system that is not much used in Friuli, but well acclaimed in wine regions that typically produce high quality Pinot, such as Bourgogne and Champagne. The goal is to well interpret the varietal characteristics that are exclusive to our micro area in order to achieve great Pinot, and preserve the plants so they can continue producing quality wines for at least the next 60 years.
