be wines brands piro 1


Piro originates from the Friulian version of the great-grandfather’s name Peter, who started viticulture in the Jakončič family and in 1932 bought a part of the land where they now have a farm. It is in the middle of Vipolž, the southernmost village in the Goriška brda. They produce annual and elegant wines, which are characterized by variety, fruitiness and freshness, but also fullness. The production of such wines requires a small load on the vine, optimal ripeness of the grapes, cold maceration for up to 12 hours, fermentation at low temperatures and existence on the lees for eight months. Varieties include chardonnay, pinot gris, sauvignon, soreli (macerated tokaj), plase (a type of chardonnay and sauvignon) and cabernet sauvignon. The second line of Bosc, in Friulian forest, is from the said location. The wines have already received a number of awards from various international competitions, a total of over 30, and the most noble is certainly the title of champion in 2000, the last title from 2014 is a gold medal in the USA for merlot bosc. This line of wines is fuller, with accentuated secondary aromas of vanilla, caramel, coconut, as well as chocolate. The production of these wines is exclusively from overripe grapes, the entire vinification takes place in wood with longer macerations, fermentation at higher temperatures, and lying on its own lees from 24 to 36 months in oak barrels. The result is full, tannic and rich wines with pronounced secondary and tertiary notes.
