Description Build A Case!
Valter Scarbolo gained a passion for viticulture and winemaking from his father Gino, who ran a farm in Lauzacco in the 1960s. Valter earned a degree in Agriculture and Oenology and founded Azienda Agricola Scarbolo in Friuli's Grave region in 1982. In addition to vigneron, Valter bears the title of acclaimed restaurateur. He opened La Frasca Trattoria in 1994 and has since built a global reputation for reshaping the way foreign restaurateurs express Italian cuisine and hospitality. Naturally, Valter keeps food pairings in mind when producing his wines. More recently, Valter has been accompanied by his son, Mattia, who is starting to take the reins as the family's next generation vintner.

The vineyards are located in the heart of the Friulian plains on the right bank of the river Torre and just south of the Colli Orientali. Valter cultivates over 25 ha of vineyards grown in red clay soils mixed with alluvial deposits, minerals and chalk, which provide optimal drainage conditions. The climate is dry and ventilated with alternating temperate winds of cool breezes from the east and warm marine breezes from the Adriatic. This ideal thermal excursion allows the grapes to ripen slowly, resulting in more balanced aromas and richer flavors.

Tasting Notes: The color is an intense golden yellow. The aromas are that of golden delicious apples and honey, with an elegant mineral undertone that harmonizes with its generous structure and balance. A perfect wine to serve as an aperitif or to pair with soups, raw seafood appetizers, poultry and fish dishes. Serve at 54 58degrees F.
