...An "All Star" grower in the Gambero Rosso, this exceptional Friuli estate has over the past few years won over twenty "Three glasses" awards in Italy's most respected guide to wine. Most unusally, the estate is publicly-owned, with profits being channeled into charitable concerns such as the local nuns who help the underprivileged.
