WINEMAKER NOTES

At the gates of Cormòns, in the hamlet of Angoris, the heart of the estate and the Villa Locatelli welcome visitors with an embracing row of cypress trees. The park, the symmetries of the vineyards, the colors of the autumn or the yellow enlightening rapeseed blossom in spring are all a delight to the eyes and soul. The 120 hectares of vineyards of Tenuta di Angoris reveal their space into three zones AOC neighboring region: Isonzo del Friuli, Collio and Friuli Eastern Hills, areas protected from cold winds from the north-east through the Alps and influenced by the Adriatic sea breezes that whisper from the south. It is very versatile and goes well with simple fish dishes or vegetable sauces.
