Federica Magrini and Lorenzo Mocchiutti are the passionate people behind the Vignai da Duline estate in the far eastern Italian wine region of Friuli Venezia Giulia. These are soulful wines in the true sense of the word. The vineyards, even the oldest vines going back to the 1930s have never been treated with herbicides and traditional wisdom has been applied to the vineyard practises with spectacular results.
Here they work with Pinot Grigio, Malvasia Istriana, Sauvignon Blanc (a very old clone), Tocai Friulano, Schioppettino, Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso and several international varieties to produce wines that are bright and filigreed, showing impressive clarity, finesse and detail. Beautifully made wines.
