Cellar for up to 5 years. Serve chilled.

Local farmer Min Zorzettig founded Tunella winery back in the 1960s and it is still in the hands of the same family today. In the last couple of decades his grandchildren have focused on producing premium white wines which capture the unique terroir of this corner of eastern Friuli. In total they work 70 hectares planted on suntrap terraces which are cooled in the summer by regular breezes from the nearby Adriatic.

This crisp and delicious Pinot Grigio is grown on the area’s classic “ponca” or marl and sandstone soils which help to produce incredibly elegant, finely-structured wines with plenty of aromatic character. Fruit for this bottling is harvested at optimum ripeness and then fermented using wild yeasts in large 30 litre Slavonian oak casks. The wine is allowed to rest on the lees over the winter and then bottled when the family deem it ready to drink and enjoy.

Bursting with aromatic almond blossom, pears, ripe apricots and hints of toasty oak, this elegant white wine makes an ideal aperitif or partner for seafood, sushi, and leafy salads. On the palate there’s plenty of freshness, a light body, and a long, clean finish with hints of ripe stone fruit and refreshing citrus.
