San Simone - Friulan Wines since 1915
“Wine making is an art in itself but not just any kind of art. It is an art which does not require only know-how but also loads of passion, love, sacrifice, patience, sensitivity and fantasy. It is essential to have a solid tradition and strong enological culture. This art cannot be merely learned, it is something innate. It is an emotion, and like everything that springs from the heart, it becomes a light for the mind, a scent and an enthusiasm for the life through the transformation of the grapes into wine.”
It represents the spearhead of the San Simone production. The richest grapes are selected with the aim of achieving the highest level of typicality, elegance and concentration possible. We prefer steel for the fermentation and maturation of our wines, but in the last twenty years, for some varieties, we wanted to experiment with the small barrel as an instrument to enhance the characteristics of the fruit and the territory. The barrique therefore as a means not to add and cover but possibly to take off, as a discreet and silent actor.
