Friulano is one of the oldest indigenous grape varietals of the Collio DOC. Its presence in Friuli Venezia Giulia dates back to the XVII Century.

 

Collio Friulano Amani originates from a vineyard that is more than 70 years old, planted exclusively by hand. The name “Amani” comes from these ancient origins.

Type of Soil

The Collio’s hilly terrain. This soil type, called Flysch in Italian and Ponca in the Friulian dialect, is characterized by the stratification of marl and sandstone. It formed during the Eocene period and was once part of the ocean floor. The resulting soil is rich in minerals and, supported by an important temperature range, it lends sapidity and minerality to the wines and is ideal for white grape varietals.
