Tasting notes

Straw yellow in color with slight golden highlights. On the nose it has great intensity and complexity. It is invitingly fragrant and fruit-driven with notes of alpine flowers and a pleasant hint of almond. In the mouth it is fresh and well balanced with a nice backbone and a long aromatic finish.

Vineyard

The soil of the Collio DOC is a mixture of marls and sandstone from the underlying stratified layers, and usually it is clay in the higher grounds and fine-grained at the foot of the hill slopes. The vines vary in age from 10-45 years old.

Vinification

The grapes are directly pressed without any maceration on the skins. Temperature-controlled fermentation activated by selected yeasts, takes place in stainless steel tanks for about ten days. Once fermentation is completed the wine remains on the fine lees until spring, when it is bottled.

Estate

The name Borgo Conventi, which translates to "hamlet convent", was inspired by a legend and a plot of land in the ancient hamlet of Farra d'Isonzo, located in Italy's Friuli-Venezia Giulia region. In the 17th Century, a noble landowner, Count Strassoldo, donated the land to a friar named Basilio Pica, on which the province's first monastery was built. Established in 1975, Borgo Conventi took its name from this legendary land in Farra d'Isonzo and was founded on the promise to produce elegant wines which respect the land and the province's history. Today, Giancarlo Polegato and his family remain committed to that promise.

Food Pairing

Perfect as an aperitif. It complements hard cheeses, Prosciutto, scampi, shrimps and raw fish dishes, first course pastas and risottos with vegetables, and chicken-based dishes.
