About the Wine
The dream of the Tombacco family began when, in 1968, they acquired the Magredi winery. In its origins, this estate had also apple and peach trees, but soon the love of wine took over, and they decided to plant nothing but vines.
The Tombacco family has a broad sense of responsibility for the quality of the vineyard and the wine. The vineyard is treated with absolute care and respect, and they’re committed to the environment using sustainable practices. The winery was built in 1990 and has continued to be modernized and equipped with state-of-the-art technology. The winery is the perfect combination of tradition and modernity. Thanks to all the efforts both in the vineyard and in the winery, I Magredi is proudly one of the highest-quality and most recognized wineries in the whole area.
Friuli Grave is a DOC located in Friuli-Venezia Giulia, home to this magnificent wine. Wine experts and some of the most important critics in the world have compared this region to Graves DOC in Bordeaux. The reason is simple, they both share similarities within their spectacular terroirs and in fact, both of their names are given after the gravelly soils. This region is made up of more than 18 acres of vineyards, located in one of the most privileged areas in the entire country, bordering on both sides of the Tagliamento River.
Friuli Grave DOC is a paradise for the vines to thrive, and the dreamed region of any winemaker thanks to different factors. First, is the maritime influence due to the proximity to the Adriatic Sea. Second, is the proximity to the mountains, which protect the valley from cold winds and extremely cold weather. And third, the soils are composed of garrigue and stones, enhancing the thermal differential between day and night. Thanks to its unique terroir, this region is known for producing spectacular, elegant, and high-quality wines.
Tasting Notes: 100% Sauvignon Blanc. The wine is straw yellow with greenish highlights. The nose is elegant with aromas of peaches, tropical fruits, passion fruits, and grapefruit. The palate is fresh and luscious. This Sauvignon Blanc is a very food-friendly wine. It pairs lovely with fish-based appetizers, seafood, and oysters.
