There is no fancy story here, just exceptional farming and highly unique terroir.  The 120 hectares that surround Castelvecchio are part of a natural park of limestone and red earth rich in minerals. This difficult but generous terrain offers the ideal environment for growing grapes. The dry microclimate & diurnal temperature variations, ​the ​proximity of the sea​,​ and the Bora (local winds) create an ideal climatic condition for the grapes.  The Carso (aka Kras or Karst) region extends across the southwestern border of Slovenia and northern Italy, influenced by the Alps to the north and the Adriatic sea to the south giving the region coastal and alpine influence.

Terrano is an ancient varietal with records dating back to Roman times. Some historical writings mention wine made from Terrano used as medicine. We like to agree with this text, wine is medicine!  After 9 months in stainless ​steel containers (without malolactic fermentation), the wine remains ​another 3 months in bottles before release.  This is Friuli's answer to Beaujolais, with a touch brighter acidity.

Pairing: Fatty fish, charcuteries, anything smoked, calabrese pizza, pasta dishes, roasted chicken, eggplant Parmesan

Soil: Arid and rocky soil with a reduced stratum of red sand, but rich in iron and lime-stone. The area is constantly ventilated and influenced by the near sea.
