THE WINE'S STORY

Angoris Villa Locatelli is steeped in history. In order to thank him for his service in the 30 Years War, Locatelli Locatelli was given 300 fields in an area of Cormòns known as “Langoris” by then Emperor Ferdinand III in 1648. At the time this area of Friuli was part of the Hapsburg Empire. From this time on Tenuta di Angoris became a retreat for the royalty and èlite from throughout the Hapsburg Empire. Villa Locatelli, which still dominates the estate, became a symbol of quality and hospitality and the wines that came from the estate made their way across the royal courts of Europe. Over three centuries later it is still regarded as one of the most prestigious wineries in Friuli.

M+Q NOTES

This medium bodied wine is classic Fruilano. Medium bodied with fragrant wildflowers, honeysuckle, nectarine and fennel are drawn across the waxy palate. Wildflowers dominate the nose with some richness of almond and honeysuckle combine with some vegetal geranium leaf and hay aromas. A very well balanced wine with a bitter almond finish.
