SONORO FRIULANO
TENUTA DI ANGORIS


THE WINE & THE REGION
Grape Varietal: 100% Friulano 

Tenuta di Angoris, home of Sonoro wines, is the oldest winery in Friuli and was given to Locatello Locatelli, the original owner, by the Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire in 1648. The 630 hectares of fields and woods are situated between the Alps, which separate Italy from Austria, and the Adriatic Sea. The vines and Villa Locatelli, the historic villa located on the property, have been expertly tended to for hundreds of years by generations of Locatelli men and women.

The beautiful and expressive characteristics found in Sonoro wines can be credited to the origin within Friuli: Isonzo. The vines enjoy the unique Isonzo microclimate with warm, sunny days and brisk, chilly nights that help maintain balanced acidity and sugar levels in the grapes. The maritime climate allows for just the right amount of rainfall in Isonzo and the stony soils of pebbles and red clay, rich in aluminum and iron oxides, also contribute to the unique zest and flavor of Sonoro.

The prestige and history of Tenuta di Angoris and the exceptional environment in which the grapes are expertly cared for make Sonoro the pride of Friuli.

THE STYLE
Sonoro’s Friulano is an exceptional expression of the region because it is made with 100% Friulano grapes, which are indigenous to, and grow almost exclusively in, Friuli. The Friulano vines at Angoris were originally planted in 1986, giving them more than 20 years of age. The final product is a lovely and unique wine with strong notes of wildflowers on the nose, and almond and honey on the mouth. Notes of vanilla linger on the palate for a rich, smooth finish. This is a delectable wine worthy of its namesake region.

PAIRING NOTES
Sonoro Friulano’s body and texture make it a versatile food wine and will go well with elaborate vegetarian dishes and strong herbs such as wood-fired truffle pizza or garlic mushroom pasta. This Friulano goes perfectly with classic Friuli dishes such as risotto di Marano (shrimp, squid and mussels with rice), prosciutto, and a savory strudel called strukli, which is filled with potatoes and ricotta.
