We recently stopped by the Elvio Zani Winery in Faedis, to meet with Claudio Zani, to chat a little more about Refosco di Faedis Reserves and to check out his winery’s ‘thriving’ 120 year old ‘Vigneto Storico’ vineyard.
There comes a time in all our lives when we must face ‘Change and Resistance’. With growing maturity and self-assurance, VinNatur 2019 has faced up and grabbed both by the proverbial horns.
Regularly we find ourselves literally struck by the ‘unknown’. Always when least expected. It barrels up, clips your ear, knocks you in an earth-bound spin. Yet, within an inch of impact…that very same ‘unknown’ grabs hold, cradling your bliss-filled fall.
In a quest to prove our ‘loosely based’ comparative theory, we moved our pawns gingerly toward to the sovereign RED fortress of BAROLO in Piemonte, north west Italy.
In REAL winemaking terms, we have not met many along the beaten path who wear their philosophy so comfortably as Fulvio Bressan. Located in Farra d’Isonzo, an outpost of the Collio Goriziano, in Friuli Venezia Giulia, the BRESSAN winery is quite unique.
