Experience the elegance and power of Ronchi di Manzano Ramato DOC Friuli Colli Orientali. Made with pinot grigio that is in contact with the skins for 36 hours which give this the Ramato (copper) colour. This wine boasts a dry, balanced flavor with notes of fruit salad, sage, and almond. Best served at 9-10°, it pairs perfectly with both seafood and vegetarian starters.

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

Grown on the region's Ponca soils grown on the steep slopes of the owner's vineyards the grapes are all hand harvested into boxes which are immediately transported to the winery for freshness. The juice remains in contact with the skins for 36 hours to extract the coppery colour and some texture. After this it is pressed and the juice is returned to the tank for fermentation.  The finished wine is matured for six months in stainless steel and then a further three months in bottle before release to the market.
