Rosade Furlane/Azienda Vitivinicola Valle

 

VALLE
("When the aeroplane on which you are travelling has a wine cellar stocked by somewhat imaginative expert, you are quite likely, as it has happened to me when flying 'Alitalia', to come across good bottles of Cabernet bottled by the friulano wine producer Valle", wrote the famousjournalist Igor Mann during the 60's in "Lo stivale allo spiedo (literally"The boot on a spit", a book on italian gastronomy), at a time when Friuli wines and Gigi Valle were not yet known. )

Azienda Vitivinicola Valle owns vineyards in two of the most prestigious Crus areas of Friuli, Rosazzo and Ruttars in the sub districts of Colli Orientali del Friuli and Collio. The winery is owned and run by Gigi Valle, and his winemaker sons, Paolo, Marco and Ilaria

Gigi Valle alongside Mario Schioppetto have been a pioneering force in the use of cold fermentation techniques and stainless steel vats for years, while respecting the traditional ways of viticulture used for centuries in this very traditional wine growing region.  He cultivates typical local varieties, i.e. Ribolla Gialla, Tocai Friulano, Refosco, Pignolo etc turning them into wine using modern technology, and grows a number of international grape varietes which, although not native, thrive in area.  The Valle estate and its wines enjoy an excellent reputation.
