Dario Princic

Italy • Friuli-Venezia Giulia

Azienda Agricola Dario Prinčič is located in the village of Oslavia, just north of the town of Gorizia, and a few steps from the border with Slovenia. Ten hectares densely planted form the property, with almost all the vineyards with a Southeast exposure. The land is very steep, the soil is clay and sandstone and everything is done by hand.

After harvest, once the grapes are in the cellar they are de-stemmed and placed in open wooden vats for the maceration with no temperature control, no added yeasts and no use of sulfur. Dario employs different periods of maceration depending on the variety of the grape. After pressing, the must goes to wooden barrels and barriques. Before bottling, the wine stays 6 months in stainless steel tanks for natural fining. During bottling a small addition of sulfur (15–20 mg/l) is done. The wines are bottled unfiltered and often show a brilliant orange color in the glass.
