Traminer Cru: Cà Viola – Friuli .
Delicate and aromatic with a perfume of roses,evoking scents of Muscat, blackcurrant leaves, grape jam being cooked on the stove and ‘passito’ wine from Pantelleria.
Primary product: A selection of recently harvested Traminer grapes from Cà Viola Cru in Friuli, at the correct level of ripeness.
Alcoholic content: 43% vol
Fermentation: In stainless steel tanks under vacuum and in a controlled temperature environment. This is followed immediately by distillation in order to avoid harmful secondary fermentations.
Artisanal Distillation: Batch method with the removal of the heads and the tails in special artisanal batch steam stills created by Benito Nonino for the distillation of grapes. The distillation happens very slowly to allow the volatile components, responsible for the perfumes, a proper evaporation period and subsequent condensation, in order to keep intact the precious organoleptic characteristics of the chosen vine varieties.
Production: Limited and strictly dependent on the individual year’s harvest.
Maturation: From six months to a year in stainless steel tanks.
Bottling: The packaging is hand-made, comprising individually blown and specially dated bottles which have stoppers and level markers made of Murano glass, coloured according to the vine variety.
Optimum Temperature: About 12°C.
Tasting: Before tasting, ÙE® should be allowed to rest in a special glass with an open tulip shape for some minutes: on exposure to oxygen, the perfumes are enhanced and the nose/palate harmony is perfected.
When to drink it: Drunk, sipped or lingered over at the end of a meal or at any moment of the day it is a source of real pleasure! With respect to an aromatic variety such as Moscato, ÙE® can be added to enhance all cream cakes, cream in general (both crème anglaise and whipped cream) and ice-cream. It is excellent on a fresh fruit salad or in a sorbet.
