Collio Bianco Col Disôre Russiz Superiore
The name “Col Disôre” comes from the Friulian dialect and refers to a hill in the municipality of Capriva del Friuli. In 1648 the land was divided in two parts: “Russiz Disôre” (Russiz Superiore), the oldest center of the entire feudal settlement, mainly on the hill, and “Russiz di Sott” (Russiz Inferiore), mostly in the plain.
Deep straw yellow color with golden hues. Elegant aroma of acacia blossom and grapefruit, with pleasant vegetal and sweet hints. In the mouth it is silky and round, with a good balance between sapidity and freshness. Long, warm finish with almond hints.
Russiz Superiore, in the municipality of Capriva del Friuli in the Collio Doc.

Type of Soil
The Collio’s hilly terrain. This soil type, called Flysch in Italian and Ponca in the Friulian dialect, is characterized by the stratification of marl and sandstone. It formed during the Eocene period and was once part of the ocean floor. The resulting soil is rich in minerals and, supported by an important temperature range, it lends sapidity and minerality to the wines and is ideal for white grape varietals.
