 Obiz Natissa Bianco 2018

Obiz Natissa Bianco has an intense and brilliant straw yellow colour. The nose has intense and delicate notes of field flowers, ripe apricot, flint and aromatic herbs. The full-bodied palate is creamy, elegant and persistent with ripe apple and pear flavours alongside a side of spice. The palate is creamy ad velvety, balanced and pleasantly persistent.

Fun fact: Named after the river Natissa, which carried Roman ships from Aquileia to the Adriatic Sea. Today, seabirds nest along the river course.

50% Friulano and 50% Malvasia. The fruit comes from vines that grow in sandy clay soils of alluvial origin in DOC Friuli Aquileia.

Harvest in the second 10 days of September. Crushing and destemming of ripe grapes. Maceration on skins at low temperature for 18 hours, then alcoholic fermentation with selected yeasts at 18–20°C. Refining of the yeasts follows and periodic battonage until bottling in spring.
