"Arbis is at the same time an alternative and a complement to the monovarietals."
“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.
