Ronchi di Cialla is an historical Friulian Estate and it is strictly a family business.
Ronchi, in the dialect of Friuli, means hills cultivated with vines. Cialla is a small valley surrounded by woods with chestnut, oak and wild cherry trees, in the D.O.C. Colli Orientali del Friuli area, and it is officially recognised by a Ministerial Decree as cru.
The agronomy is made with minimum treatment with non polluting products, the vinification is carried out naturally.
The company philosophy has always been to work only with indigenous varieties, such as Ribolla, Refosco, Schioppettino, Verduzzo and Picolit that in the Cru' Cialla find the perfect environment. After 40 years Ronchi di Cialla has a well established reputation on the market as a producer of some of the finest age-worthy wines of Friuli.
Four years, with 14-18 months’ maturation in barrels and 30-36 months of ageing in bottles. Balanced red colour with ruby hues. Exceptionally elegant bouquet on the nose and strong personality (spicy fragrances with aroma of soft fruit). Dry, but rare and elegant on the palate (special white pepper flavour); rich nobility of character.
