Princic TrebezÂ is aÂ naturalÂ orange wineÂ coupage made with theÂ Chardonnay,Â Pinot GrigioÂ andÂ Sauvignon BlancÂ varieties, by theÂ Azienda AgrÃƒÂcola Dario Princic, in the region ofÂ Friuli Venezia Giulia, Italy.
Dario PrincicÂ is one of the leading producers ofÂ orange winesÂ and is a true local pioneer who, together withÂ Stanko RadikonÂ andÂ Josko Gravner, has been one of the champions of the non-interventionist approach in the vineyard and in the winery. He makes old-fashioned artisan wines using local traditions.
TheÂ Dario PrincicÂ winery is located north ofÂ Gorizia, just a stone's throw from theÂ SlovenianÂ border, and is made up of 10 hectares of steep vineyards in clay and sandstone soils that are cultivated using the principles of, Organic agriculture.
Princic TrebezÂ is made with a blend ofÂ Chardonnay,Â Pinot GrigioÂ andÂ Sauvignon BlancÂ varieties, which come from plots of 60-year-old vines that grow in clay-calcareous soils. The musts of each variety ferment separately and spontaneously. The musts remain in contact with the grape skins during maceration, which lasts between 8 days for theÂ Pinot Grigio, and up to 22 days for theÂ ChardonnayÂ andÂ Sauvignon BlancÂ varieties. The wine ages for 24 months in oak barrels. It is bottled without filtering.
Princic Trebez is an orange wine with aromas of dried fruits, citrus skins and mineral sensations on the nose. The palate is warm, with a pleasant freshness and delicate tannins.
