Friuli in my eyes

by Caterina Cipriani – It was about one year ago, at the end of the harvest 2012, when I reached Sequals. This small village, just renowned for being the native place of the famous boxer Primo Carnera, perfectly matches the idea I had in my mind when I was at school: “ the universe in miniature”*. In Winter, while I was attending the third year of college studying  Viticulture and Oenology in Udine, I started exploring this territory together with my faithful

Il Foja Tonda incontra il Pecorino di Slow Food: un’idea coraggiosa di territorio

Già fin dal primo assaggio al naso presenta profumi di frutta secca e note di frutti di bosco, in bocca il gusto è quello pieno di un formaggio dolce con profumi di latte e fienagione di montagna. Il retrogusto esprime note di delicate di vinaccia, che non interferiscono sulle peculiarità del cacio, ma che anzi ne esaltano la bontà e la persistenza in bocca, che è lunga, dolce e profumata di frutta secca. Questo è il ritrtatto del Pecorino di

About Us

Four hundred years amongst vineyards and an infinite passion for wine. The history of the Armani family and that of viticulture in the Adige Valley, between the provinces of Trento and Verona, have been evolving together, without interruption, for more than 4 centuries. Today  “Albino Armani Viticoltori dal 1607” means territory, or rather territories. The historical property in Dolcè, in the Adige Valley in the province of Verona, is one of 3 wineries located in the region Veneto: one other is to be found in Marano, in the Valpolicella Classico area, and one  in the province of Treviso, in San Polo di Piave, where our biodynamic wines are produced. Two more wineries are located in the regions Trentino and Friuli. All five wineries watch over their territories, vinifying the grapes of the surrounding vineyards. In each of them the common thread is a terroir reflecting its specific particular character in the wines springing from its soil. The headquarters remain in Dolcè, where the “Conservatoria”, a project for safeguarding local grape varieties in danger of extinction, can be visited.
