Founded in 1499, Tenuta Villanova is nowadays the longest-living winery of Friuli Venezia Giulia. The property covers approximately 495 acres, from the high banks of Isonzo river, to the Collio hills.
Tenuta Villanova produces excellences in both sectors of wine and distillation.
In 1932 the property was acquired by Arnaldo Bennati.Today it is run by his wife Giuseppina Grossi,expertly combining the respect for the traditions with the enthusiasm for the oenological future.
The area planted with vines in the Friuli Isonzo DOC, today represents a fundamental resource of our production.
The flood plain of the Isonzo river is composed by layers of sandstone (calcified sands) and gravels, and it gives rise to grapes with a natural freshness and minerality. This features best express the varietal aromas.
With harvesting of fruits manually aging of wine is done in stainless steel with 6 months on the lees.Shelf life is from 4 to 6 years from the harvest,depending on storage conditions.
