Jermann Vintage Tunina IGT 2016 - Wine

Tasting Notes

This is a genuine field blend. It has a brilliant straw-yellow colour with golden highlights. Its aroma is intense, full, with enormous elegance and persistence, and with hints of honey and wild flowers. Its taste is dry, velvety, and very well-orchestrated, with an exceptional persistence due to its particularly full body.

Production Notes

The type of terrain is predominantly marlstone and sandstone belonging to the Flysch formation from the Eocene era, characteristic of the Collio area with southwest and northwest aspect. For this particular blend, a selection is made of the best grapes which are gathered late, around two weeks after the normal harvest, on a surface of around 16 hectares of vineyard cultivated on Ronco del Fortino. The training system forms used are guyot-cappuccina, with 6000-7000 vines per hectare and with a yield of 40-60 quintals. Made with grapes: Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Ribolla Gialla, Malvasia Istriana, Picolit. The grapes are vinified together in stainless steel and left on lees for several months.

Producer Profile

The region of Friuli boasts an increasing number of prominent wineries, but Silvio Jermann remains the shining star. He owns forty acres of estate vineyards that surround the family home in Farra Isonzo, where he created a new breed of big, fruity, ageworthy Friulian wines (outside the regulations set by the DOC). Capo Martino and Dreams have distinguished themselves as two of Italy's greatest and best-known white wines. In 1881 Anton Jermann, the founder, left the Austrian wine-growing region of Burgenland and, later, the vines of Slovenia to put down roots in Friuli Venezia Giulia. Here he continued his winery business, and from the 1970s Silvio Jermann combined genius and imagination took the company to undreamed-of success in wine circles, both in Italy and worldwide. Today Jermann estate extends over 150 hectares of which 130 hectares are vineyards and 20 hectares are given over to seed and horticultural crops. This is a company that interacts with the world every day, but its greatest attention is always reserved for the things that make a wine great. Silvio Jermann's wines have often been described as the finest white wines in Italy. 2006 saw the unveiling of their new state-of-the art winery which has been beautifully designed to sit in a bowl amongst their vineyards. It is the talk of the region and very much indicative of Silvio Jermann's forward-thinking approach to winemaking. Silvio uses unique blending methods prior to vinification to produce highly-prized wines with floral aromas and a piercing varietal character along with an elegance which will only become finer through age. Silvio's sons Michele and Felix are the latest family members to carry on the tradition.
