Friuli Italy

I Clivi

The Clivi vineyards are situated on the sea-facing slopes of the first range of hills rising from the south across the “Collio” D.O.C. (Denominazione di Origine Controllata) and the “Colli Orientali del Friuli” D.O.C. districts, on the northeastern rim of the Adriatic Sea. This is considered to be the very best vinegrowing land of Friuli-Venezia Giulia, where the most reputed white wines of Italy come from. The vineyards cover a surface of twelve hectares, of which four lie on the slopes of Mount Quarin at Brazzano in the comune of Cormons in the southwestern end of the Collio disctrict, and eight on the hill of Gramogliano in the comune of Corno di Rosazzo, the southeastern tip of the Colli Orientali disctrict facing the Collio. Soil composition is a mixture of limestone, clay and sandstone.
