Tenuta Stella is set in an area noted for its hamlets and remote farms that have dotted the rolling hills of the Collio since Roman times. Gorizia’s Collio is an area extraordinarily well suited to viticulture because of its unique climate and soil composition. The land here in the hills of Eastern Friuli is called “Ponca”, its origins dating back the Eocene, when slow sedimentation of marine areas, with limestone and clay, created this fertile land. The low yielding Guyot trained vines running along the high altitude terraced vineyards of Tenuta Stella are only treated with organic fertilizer and do not require pesticides. Indigenous Ribolla Gialla and Malvasia are the true expression of Collio Terroir.
Straw yellow with golden hues. At first it is characterized by soft fruity aromas that blend with a hint of vanilla, and then give way to mineral notes where you can note the terroir. It’s a young wine, but gains importance by the high mineral content, resulting from the gradual aging in bottle. On the palate important varietal and acidity notes stand out, it starts with a distinct feeling of freshness and finishes with in a warm and soft finale. Good persistence, fullness and length, and typical flavor of the grape varietal blend perfectly with the flavor of the terroir. Despite its youth, the wine is characterized by an important elegance.
