About the Winery
Zuani winery is located in the heart of Collio, Friuli, a hidden appellation between the Adriatic Sea and the Alps. Coming from a long tradition of winemakers in Croatia that goes back to the 19th century, Patrizia Felluga saw her dream come true when she acquired the estate and the vineyards in 2001. Today, her son and daughter have taken over the winery; producing exclusively white wines. Everything hinges on one exceptionally well exposed “cru”, or vineyard, on a gentle hillside where about eleven acres of vines and gardens surround the Zuani cellar.
The varietals planted are Tocai Friulano, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio and Sauvignon, a carefully chosen range that produced the first vintage of Zuani Collio Bianco. The Zuani winery embodies the Felluga family winemaking heritage and expresses the fundamental unity of the traditional aspects of Friulian varieties with their more modern side.

Ribolla is a rarely seen indigenous variety of northeast Italy. It is a mild, pristine and very well balanced white - enigmatic and curious. It has semi-aromatic nose of apricot/melon fruit, almond, vague florality and green tea. It is medium bodied, precisely balanced and fresh, yet somewhat mineral as well. The length is excellent. Tasted December 2020

Lovely, characterful Ribolla here, very smoky-stony-sulfide-driven in the best way, with plenty of citrus fruit and peel, grapefruit and fresh, sweet herbs. Length and depth are excellent in the price category. Tasted December 2020.
Lovely aromas of white spring flowers mingle with pear and a whiff of freshly baked bread. Racy and elegant, the savory palate offers ripe apple, white peach and citrusy notes alongside vibrant acidity. It has a crisp, pristine close.
