Producer Info: 

From a small start on the outskirts of Spilimbergo, the Fantinel family have developed over four decades to be a significant and admired producer of the gorgeous whites (Friulano, Pinot Grigio, & Verduzzo) and lighter reds (like Refosco and Merlot) of Friuli – wines which are catching on so fast here.

Tasting note:

The Grave del Friuli zone is one of 3 top spots of northern Italy for Pinot Grigio (along with nearby Collio and Alto Adige, further to the northwest). This shows the signature austere minerality of these wines, along with a delicious, pear and melon juiciness to the aromas and flavours.

Growing System: Guyot
