Description

Details of wine

Castelvecchio is a company that extends in Friuli in the Karst area, always the cradle of great whites produced thanks to the optimal climatic conditions and the conformation of the soil, hard to cultivate but excellent from a qualitative point of view.

The company, with a typically artisan production, is today considered one of the most important for the production of the great white wines of the North.

In particular, Sauvignon Castelvecchio represents an excellent interpretation of this French grape variety that arrived in Friuli during the second half of the 19th century.

A wine that contains all the characteristics of the grape, integrating them with the minerality deriving from the limestone conformation of the territory where it is grown.

Production in steel with processing phases carried out mainly by hand and aging on the lees for a few months, give life to a wine with a typical aromaticity and in perfect Gorizia style.

The Carso region is a territory sometimes known only for the sad and bloody historical events of the First World War. However, it has always been a territory dedicated to the cultivation of vineyards, olives and first fruits of the seasons due to the climate peculiarities of this plateau. Testimony to this natural richness is the Villa Veneta “Della Torre Hohenlohe”, built in the late 1700s. This historical Villa was used for holiday and entertainment and it is located in a beautiful agricultural propriety. In fact, the “Villa Veneta system” associated the practical agricultural function with the leisure and recreation function. In historical maps you can notice the presence of gardens, olive trees and vineyards. The Villa was owned by the Della Torre Hofer Valsassina dynasty until 1849, then passed to the family of the Hohenlohe Waldenburg princes. Since the 80’s the Terraneo Family followed, with far-sightedness and passion, this beautiful project of farming-agricultural Villa. They are enhancing the Carso territory by producing wines of great character and oil.
