Summary: Mont’Albano was founded in 1985 in the heart of the Friuli Venezia Giulia region, as a result of the intuition of Mauro Braidot who, unlike the majority of the producers of the time, converted his 5 hectares (12.3 acres) of vineyard to organic production. Today the winery is a proud champion of organic viticulture and wine-making, producing vibrant, fruit driven wines from some of the most sought after organic vineyards and sites in Italy.
Winemaking: Hand harvested in the early morning to retain natural acidity. Primarily whole bunched pressed, aiming to limit skin contact and preserve elegance. Fermented in stainless steel with temperature control before maturation on lees to build texture and complexity.
Tasting Note: A unique and alluring wine showcasing peach, honey dew and lemon citrus aromatics. The wine has both body and a light feel with citrus fruit, light florals, fresh acidity and a fine mineral edginess. Soave wines are terrific with food whilst this example has both purity, weight and freshness to also be lovely on its own.
