In Vencò, at the heart of Collio area, within the gorgeous frame of the vineyards owned by Fantinel family, “Tenuta Sant’Helena” stands out. At few steps from the boundary with Slovenia, the mild climate, provided by the protection of the Julian Alps northwards and the openness to the Adriatic sea southwards, and the superb terroir made up of marly sandstones create a magnificent environment for grape growing. Here the focused clonal research, the careful selection of the best grapes and the peculiar enhancement of Friulian indigenous vine varieties give birth to a refined collection, high expression of Fantinel company quality. The Ribolla Gialla Sant’Helena is pale straw-yellow in color with an elegant fruity bouquet. On the palate lean, fresh and vinous.
