Verduzzo

Golden-yellow in colour, with intense aromas of honey, baked apple and pear, and acacia flowers. The wine is sweet but not cloying, with a long, honeyed finish.

Drying the grapes, a process known as apassimento, concentrates the flavours and the sugars. The result is an intensely-flavoured, golden-hued sweet wine that pairs well with a range of desserts and cheeses.

arcania

Arcania are a cooperative of growers located near Udine in Friuli, who came together with the shared purpose of creating high-quality wines that reflect and respect their environment. The five different farms cover 43 hectares of vineyards, all certified organic. They have over twenty years of experience in working without the use of chemicals in either the vineyard or winery. The wines are all fined without the use of animal products, making them suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

In some years, Arcania also produces entry-level wines under the ‘Castello di Arcano’ label. These wines are essentially declassified versions of the Arcania wines, and show the same commitment to quality as the main line, although at a lower price.
