Description

Details of wine

The Brandolini family is an example of a reality where everyone works, dreams and smiles every day, born almost by chance when dad Brandino after an experience in a kibbutz west of Haifa, discovers his passion for the land so much that he undertakes it agricultural studies at Texas University.
Since then, generations have followed one another and today the cellar is a point of refreshment especially in the cultivation of Merlot.

In addition to Merlot, this cellar vinifies other vines including Refosco which, in purity, gives life to the homonymous wine.

Thanks to the knowledge of the territory by the Brandolini family, the grapes grown following the certified organic specification, reaches perfect ripeness and is inserted into a production process attentive to quality and respect for the ecosystem.

All this gives life to an intense wine with structure, tannin and primary hints.

Perfect during a dinner with friends.

Vistorta is a small “borgo” within an agricultural estate in the heart of Western Friuli, which has belonged to the Brandolini family since 1780. Since the 2nd Century A.D. two Roman capitals define the property’s boundaries and are still testimony to Vistorta’s agricultural origins today. In 1800 Guido Brandolini, after graduating from Padua University, retired to Vistorta and transformed it into a modern and efficient farm estate, with a foresight and investment which is surprising even today. The villa, the Barchessa (open barn) and the adjoining farm houses are testimony to a very up-to-date conception of farming activity: the fame of its grapes, of its cellars and the quality of its renowned wines go well beyond regional boundaries. The present day Vistorta estate, which cultivates 220 hectares of land around the villa, has been managed by Brandino Brandolini d’Adda since 1980. A graduate in Agricultural science at the Texas A. & M. University, and following a first wine-making experience in another family-owned estate, Chateau Greysac in Bordeaux, Brandino planned a renovation of the Vistorta estate following the French model, that is by concentrating on one great red wine. The planting of new grape varieties was begun with the collaboration of Georges Pauli, (wine maker at the Chateau Gruaud Larose) at the end of the 1980s, integrating them with the existing varieties and in so doing, producing very high quality grapes, the decision to use Merlot, a variety originating in Bordeaux and brought to Friuli a century ago, was not made by chance, and It was perfectly suited to the Vistorta “terroir”.
