Arbis Ros


Winemaker: Mauro and Alessandra Mauri

Alcohol: 13.5% alcohol by volume

Appellation: Venezia Giulia IGT

Grape Varieties: 100% Pignolo

Summary: Brother and sister team, Mauro and Alessandra Mauri, express their shared winemaking philosophy through a strictly limited range of low- production wines and a handful of key wine-making concepts. They strategically focus on native Friuli grapes and the terroir of Friuli, something they have come to know and love. The high standards at Borgo San Daniele are based on irrevocable rules of practice which begin in the vineyard with high density planting, low plant vigor, and sustainable farming practices. This results in well balanced, thoroughly integrated wines that truly display Mauro and Alessandra's passion for their vineyards and wines that they produce.

Vinification: Traditional fermentation with 15 days of skin contact. This wine is aged for 12 months in oak barrels (50% 225L French barrique, 25% 500L French tonneaux and 25% 2000L Slavonian cask) and bottle aged for another 6 months prior to release.

Aromas & Flavors: Full of personality, broad and elegant with a slight herbaceous character and red fruit aromas on the nose. Round red fruits caress the palate with a lush, intricate finish. Pairs well with all roasted meats and dry cheeses.

Varietal Notes:

Pignolo is a red Italian wine grape grown predominantly in the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region of northeast Italy. In Italian the grape's name means "fussy" which does describe the viticultural profile of the grape often producing low and uneven yields. This grape is used to make rich, deep colored, full bodied wine that does well with some time in oak. Well made examples of the wine have good balance between the grape's acidity and tannins with flavor notes of plum and blackberry.
