Richer, more concentrated wines, without being too complex.
Deeper, stronger wines, with bigger tannins (for reds) or refined flavours (for whites).
: 5-Stars wines will have more flavour intensity and/or complexity. Some may be ready to drink now, but many can age for a few more years.

Details

Conti Formentini was created in 1520 by the Formentini family; Venetian Counts, when they purchased the existing castle in the town of San Floriano del Collio, the highest hilltop village in eastern Friuli and the surrounding feudal lands. Wine from the vineyards surrounding the Castello Formentini and the hills of San Floriano have been made here ever since and the Formentini cellar is considered one of the oldest in Collio. Today, the descendants of the Formentini family still own and manage the estate.

Collio Goriziano (or Collio DOC) is an Italian wine region in Friuli-Venezia Giulia, located in the northernmost part of the Province of Gorizia, bordering Slovenia. The name Collio comes from the Italian term for hills, colli. With vines planted since pre-Roman time, Collio is a historic region renowned for its cooler climate and vines planted on rolling hillside across this mountainous region, dominated by white varietals.

In the local dialect, “Furlana” means “to speak Friulian”. The name of this wine refers to the role this variety has always played in the history of Collio, the “flagship wine” of this border territory. It offers an ample and fragrant perfume of meadow flowers and bitter almonds, with recollections of honey; a smooth, velvety, full and harmonic flavour with a highly persistent, distinct and pleasant, bitterish peach nut finish.
