Borgo dei Vassalli, Lorenzon
The Lorenzon family's 170 hectares of vineyard in the Isonzo DOC zone in southeastern Friuli are primarily split between two blocks.
The first, I Feudi di Romans, was an old apple grove with stony, well-drained soil of glacial origin and now comprises 60 hectares of vineyard in the heart of the zone.
The second, the Borgo dei Vassalli vineyard, is situated further south in the zone, where the vineyards are on richer soil. Winemaker Davide Lorenzon (with a bit of help from Matt Thomson) produces characterful wines of great value.
