CIVON Rosso D.O.C. Friuli Colli Orientali

Il Roncal

CIVON Rosso D.O.C. Friuli Colli Orientali - Il Roncal

Its name has ancient origins: at one time a very special grape, called cividina, was grown here in the Cividale area, which ripened later than other grapes. This grape was used to produce a wine called Civon, which was very robust and tannic, not good to drink young, but very balanced and structured when aged in wooden barrels. We wanted to revive this name as a tribute to the past, to the winemaking tradition of this land, its language and its people.
