ABOUT THIS WINE
"Arbis" is an ancient name for a young wine which peaks the language of flowers and aromatic herbs, and in fact in Friulan the name means 'herbs'. The choice of the word is the simplest way to describe how we grow it, in a vineyard with a covering of wild grasses and herbs. Grass cover, cut back periodically, is a way to mitigate the effects of the mono-culture typical of today's specialised vineyards and above all to contain the vigour of the vine. Arbis is at the same time an alternative and a complement to the monovarietals, an expression of the mutual diversity of the varieties which compose it but also the splendid unity they create in the wine.
A natural match for appetizers, soups and first courses, especially rice and pasta. Also excellent with shellfish and fish in general. Serving temperature 12-14 °C.
ABOUT THIS PRODUCER
Mauro Mauri (owner, winemaker, oenologist, and vineyard manager wizard) of Borgo San Daniele farms exclusively Organically with Biodynamic practice since 1990. You will find life in all his vineyards, including the cru site "Bosc di Sot" in the village of Cormons, where his Pinot Grigio is planted.
In his impeccably clean cellar, crushing of the grapes is followed by brief skin contact at controlled temperatures and soft pressing. After racking, the must is fermented at controlled temperatures and the wine ages on the lees until the spring. The cuvèe is prepared in the late summer when the wine is bottled without filtering following the moon cycles and according to the biodynamic calendar.
