DENIS MONTANAR 2002 Borc Dodon Verduzzo Friulano - White

Wine, Italy / Frioul-venetie Julienne, 75cl, Ref: 6117

Not to be confused with the Scodovacca cuvée, which is also made with Verduzzo Friulano grapes, this wine has been produced by Denis Montanar, a celebrated maker of natural Italian wines. Its colour explains why this wine is also included in the orange wine category: vinified with white grapes, these wines’ character is due to a lengthy maceration in which the grape skin is left in contact with the must. Rich, straightforward and balanced, this is a wine that deserves to be decanted several hours before serving to give it time to open up and express itself.

The brand

The brand

Having taken over his grandfather’s property and the vines that were planted at the beginning of the 20th century, Denis Montanar began to develop his own style of wine in 1989. In 1995 he decided to expand the vineyard and bought some of the surrounding land, creating his own brand, Borc Dodòn, which is the name of the local town in the regional dialect. Part of the property is devoted to cereal crops, which enables the production of natural organic fertilizer. The vines have been farmed organically since 1996: the wines are fermented with natural yeasts and are not filtered. The grapes are picked by hand and every effort is made to achieve a natural expression of the terroir.


The line

Having developed in the boom years after the Second World War, conventional agriculture is based on notions of yield. Largely applied in the world of wine-growing, this approach began to be challenged in the early 1990s. Leading the revolt were a handful of grape growers and wine producers who denounced the over-use of pesticides, fungicides and yeasts that have been cultured in laboratories. This trend of moving towards natural methods, that the main wine producers are now also trying to develop, has resulted in the creation of many types of certification; among the strictest is Demeter; there are also various groups and associations in France and across the Alps such as Renaissance AOC and Triple A.
