Ronco delle Betulle nestles in the hilly eastern part of Friuli in a subzone called Rosazzo, an estate of approximately seventeen hectares, of which ten are under vine. The hills of Rosazzo benefit from a special microclimate determined by several geographical factors: its proximity to the sea and its altitude. The sea mitigates the climate, the elevation ensures that Rosazzo is well ventilated and well lit, whilst the vicinity of Mount Caterina protects the area from the northerly wind. Ronco delle Betulle has a purist wine-making philosophy: that the essential character of the wine derives from the sun, the soil and the area and that typicity should be respected and preserved, never altered. Elegance and freshness are other watchwords; these are wines with keen acidity.

Brilliant cool climate red with great balance. Deep red/black colour. Lovely nose is vivid, mineral and leafy edged, with blackcurrant and raspberry fruit. Savoury, tomato- leafy fruit on the palate. Pure and concentrated with an attractive chalky minerality.
