About the producer:
Bicinicco – The Stocco name contains a family tradition which has dedicated itself to the love and care of its land for more than 100 years.
Four generations of wine producers, started with Francesco who dedicated the Stocco name to those first vineyards, and which continues today with Andrea, Daniela and Paola. Viticulture in Bicinicco, in the Friuli Grave area, has found an original link between the peculiarity of its territory, which is unique thanks to its gravel and red soil, and the respectful and tenacious work undertaken by the Stocco family. The “Grave” subzone, which is situated between the provinces of Udine and Pordenone, hosts the most famous clone “cradle” in the world. With indigenous grapes such as Friulano, Malvasia Istriana and Refosco, there are also international varieties which have happily acclimatized themselves here such as the elegant Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, and the aromatic Sauvignon.Friuli “Grave” – Just as the name says, Grave (gravelly stones) lays on the flatter soil south of Udine.
This soil is stones left by the Tagliamento river looking up at the Carnic Alps. The deep soil and well drained stones on the river plane let the rocks and stones to store heat during the day, and to release it during the night, so not to stress the vines.
