Presentation of the vineyard
Forchir is a winery located in the northeast of Italy, more precisely in the "Friuli" region which is the last outpost of Italy before the border with Slovenia. The winery dates back more than 100 years, but the current owners Gianfranco Bianchini and Enzo Deana took over the operations in 1984. However, without changing the winery's historic name which has been given from the Forchir family. This is part of the winery philosophy and it also applies to the wine making - things are not changed for the sake of changing. The idea is to let the natural grapes together with the soil, "terroir" and the specific climate, create wines with no major external influences. The goal is to produce wines with personality, with a typical local and regional character.
Light yellow and crystal clear with silvery hues. A pleasant, iodo fragrance with notes of oyster. A dry but very well balanced and rich flavor with some fruity elements. A wine where the strength of the flavor has more importance than the alcoholic strength. A typical seafood wine with much finesse.
