Terre di Plovia – “Piligrin” Venezia Giulia IGT

Piligrin in Friulian language means pilgrim, a person one who in ancient times would travel the Cammino del Tagliamento, along the Tagliamento river, through the Lands of Plovia, to reach Venice, and then embark for the Holy Land. In your glass Piligrin is vibrant red, the nose is intense and polyphonic, and it recalls small red fruits, such as currants, blueberries and plums, and you even get a nuance of morello cherry jam. There are notes of cyclamens and violets followed by sensations of fresh and minty herbs. The finish has a hint of bitter cocoa and licorice root. Piligrin has a lively character on the palate, supporting the aromatic persistence given by its intriguing Piculit Neri grape variety.
