La Viarte: the new Rosé Liende from pure Schioppettino grapes

Viarte expands its production with a rosé wine with an innovative and multifaceted character, ready to conquer its own space in the wine heritage of the Colli Orientali del Friuli, further enhancing it. It is the new Rosé Liende, previewed at Vinitaly 2024, where it received great acclaim thanks to its chic and contemporary style, in the wake of great international rosés, and a typically Friulian essence given by the vine symbol of the Prepotto (Udine) area: the Schioppettino. A wine that best expresses the new course undertaken by the winery under the guidance of the Polegato family, in which every production process is based on the search for absolute quality and valorization of native vines.

Prepotto extends along the Judrio Valley, a torrential river which, for a long stretch, marks the border with Slovenia. La Viarte is located on one of these hills, surrounded by vineyards, 24 hectares in one block, at almost 200 meters above sea level.

Here the temperature range and the fresh Bora winds coming from the Balkans favor the health of the plants and the aromatic complement of the grapes.

As also demonstrated by the latest innovation from the Friulian winery: that Rosé Liende which conquers the palate with its unique character, the result of pure Schioppettino grapes harvested strictly by hand, followed by a soft pressing of the grapes and a very short maceration on the skins; therefore, the vinification takes place in steel tanks at a controlled temperature. Only after a four-month rest on the fine lees and subsequent refinement in the bottle for at least six months can the Rosé Liende be put on the market.

At sight, the Rosé signed La Viarte stands out for its coppery pink, pale and crystalline colour; the delicate hints of currants and wild strawberries are striking on the nose, while on the palate it is fresh, vibrant, savory and mineral, finishing with a long and pleasant sip, with spicy and persistent nuances.

Characteristics that make it perfect in many combinations: refined aperitif, impeccable accompaniment to spring first courses, vegetables and cheeses as well as carpaccio, white meats and some ethnic cuisines, it is also the ideal glass to end a pleasant evening in company.

A wine that is a true announcement of summer, whose debut vintage – 2023 – will have a production of only 4,000 bottles.
