Isidoro Princic (also named “Doro”) established his farm in Pradis, a village close to Cormòns, the iconic nerve centre of current Collio Friulano DOC wine production. In 1965 he was almost a pioneer bottling with his own private labels the wine coming from his vineyards, despite the appellation hadn’t still being created. Today the winery is held by Isidoro’s son Sandro with his wife Grazia, responsible for reception and hospitality, and his son Carlo whom by few years dedicated himself to his grandfather vineyards. The 12 hectares of the most suitable micro-terroirs of the entire denomination lies on gentle and very sunny slopes rich in marl and sandstone of Eocene origin, known as Ponca.
One of the most representative winery wines is this Malvasia Blu: the Blu label characterizes the top of the range wines, the more intense and rich. The handpicked grapes are gently crushed, in order to extract only the free-runmust which ferments in steel tanks at controlled temperature. The wine rests in steel for a period of 6 months before being bottled.
This pale yellow with green shades 2017 vintage smells of yellow plum, crispy white peach, lime, pink grapefruit with a twist of resin, iodine, garrigue and laurel. The mouthfeel is savory and seaside with just enough freshness and softness, rounded and distinctly mineral, with an almond finish.
