Collio in Italy’s extreme North-east Friuli region is the recognised standard bearer for quality white Italian wines.

It is planted with Friulano, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio & Sauvignon Blanc and produces two wines.
Zuani Vigne 2017
The Zuani Collio Bianco ‘Vigne’ is a blend of the above grapes, each variety vinified separately in stainless steel. The wine beautifully exhibits the characteristics of classy Collio fruit – a rich yellow hue and broad palate with apricots, ripe peach, melon, and tomato leaf over a refreshing and crystal-clear framework.
