“Santòn” Vermouth Bianco

Isonzo Rive Alte

34% Malvasia Istriana, 33% Pinot Bianco, and 33% Friulano

At the base of all vermouths there is always Artemisia, a complex genius of plants that includes wormwood. In Santòn, there are three species from this genius, but the one that makes it unique is Artemisia Caerulescens (Marine wormwood), which grows in the Grado lagoon and in the local dialect it is called Santonego or Santonico from which this Vermouth takes its name.

POINTS OF INTEREST

The Santòn recipe uses 30 different species of spontaneous medicinal herbs and aromatic spices to achieve a delicate but expressive infusion that is sourced strictly from local organic gardens or foraged from the wild. The combination and infusion of herbs are a kind of magic that has taken over a decade to perfect. A very subtle balance of flavors support each other to create a compelling result, equally representing fruit, spice, and herbal notes.

Malvasia

Isonzo del Friuli DOC

Malvasia Istriana

Malvasia Istriana is a very expressive grape that grows in the Istrian peninsula shared by Croatia, Slovenia, and Italy. The aromatics of this local grape explode out of the glass with flowers, exotic fruits, apricot, and quince, combining on the palate with lime leaf and ginger, and finishing with good salinity and minerality. This wine is perfect with the local seafood but also pairs well with Japanese and Thai cuisines.

POINTS OF INTEREST

Meticulous organic and biodynamic farming and a fine-tuned approach in the winery, make this example of Friulano distinct. There are two harvests to produce this wine. The first is aged in steel and the second harvest is aged in large neutral barrels and allowed to go through Malo. Native yeast fermentation and long lees aging create a complex wine that is food friendly and a joy to drink.
