About the Producer
Ronchi di Manzano are located in Friuli, north eastern Italy, where the Colli Orientali hills play host to a wide range of small and large wine estates. The micro-climate and soil composition have shaped this land to be a cradle of great wines. The terroir has also shaped the growers and winemakers and it is only by continuing to be guided by and respect nature that they are able to consistently produce quality.
Roberta Borghese, the owner of these Ronchi (steep slopes), has understood their true values and is enthralled by the rhythm and beauty of nature.
The Ronchi di Manzano winery was established in 1969, but its vineyards have an ancient tradition of centuries. Everything started with the Counts of Trento, who had a special predilection for the Ronchi di Manzano, both for its location and for its soil composition. Its vineyards were considered to be some of the best in the whole area and the wines produced were very often requested by French and Savoy noblemen.
The Borghese family owns the Ronchi di Manzano winery since 1969. Their descendant Roberta, continues the family tradition with great passion and with the professional skills that she has acquired all around the world in places such as France, California and Italy. She has travelled and worked a lot to bring innovation to the winery, something she believes is fundamental for the company’s success. She directs the whole process of wine growing as well as the promotion of the wines she produces. Her two daughters, Lisa and Nicole have entered into the winery’s business and by following their mother footsteps, they are continuing the family tradition.
Vineyard and Winery
Marl and sandstone soils of Eocene origin locally known as “ponca” and a soil that characterises the Colli Orientali.
It is the oldest vineyard of the winery, situated 200 meters away from the cellar on the hill. The plants are very old, and trellised in a capuccina vine cultivation system meaning it is not densely planted so there is a little production of the wine. Cryo-maceration for one night at a controlled temperature of 0°C. Fermentation occurs in big wood barrels of 45hl.
The wine remains in wood barrels from the fermentation to the bottling process.
