From Friuli Venezia Giulia, a famous wine region of Italy on the border with Austria and Slovenia, that is known for the production of the highest quality white wines, but also some spectacular red wines.
We were so impressed with this distinctive red wine from Altùris and it is now a firm personal favourite of the Wineswithstories.com team. It’s a delicious barrel aged Cabernet Sauvignon. Medium ruby red in colour. Delicate hints of strawberry, cherries, vanilla, violet and black pepper spices with notes of chocolate. Off-dry, medium + acidity, medium tannins and full bodied. Wonderful viscosity in the glass and velvety smooth on the palate.
The grapes are delicately de-stemmed and subjected to pressing. The must thus obtained is left to ferment on the skins at a controlled temperature with frequent pumping over in order to extract color and aromas. The refining process continues for a short time in 500-liter tonneaux oak barrels.
Grilled T-bone and ribs of beef, pork carré, roasts. Great with lamb ribs.
Serving temperature: 16-18 degrees

This very special winery is located in the beautiful hills of Friuli, known as Italian White Wine Heaven: Friuli-Venezia Giulia, which in their mother tongue are called “Altùris”: a geometry of reliefs engraved by vineyards. Although the region is relatively small compared to the rest of Italy, it ranks among the best for producers of white wines.
It is in this revered place that Marco and Massimo Zorzettig, heirs of a historical family, which has been a symbol of solid entrepreneurship in the wine world for three generations, founded Altùris.
The winery is devoted to the creation of exquisite wines, capable
of carrying all the scents and aromas that the grapes of this unique terroir offer.
At the far North East of Italy, close to Venice and at short walk from Cividale del Friuli at the border with Austria and Slovenia, Altùris vines benefit of an unique microclimate. The Julian Alps protect them from the cold winds of North, while the breezes from Adriatic Sea smooth and mitigate the climate, offering the vineyards exceptional conditions to produce grand quality wines.
The production at Altùris winery is set for 70 percent whites and 30 percent reds. They also produce incredibly great reds.
