Tasteful wines from Collio Friulano
Azienda Agricola Franco Toros is located in Cormons, in the heart of the Collio Friulano, a hilly area between Friuli and Slovenia that is very suitable for viticulture thanks to the climate and the quality of the soil. In fact, the Julian Prealps of the north, which curb the northern cold air currents, the nearby Adriatic Sea which helps to limit both daily and seasonal temperature swings, and the terrain, composed of marl and sandstone, have created this ideal terroir. The Toros family settled in Novali at the beginning of the last century and since then several generations have succeeded at the helm of the company. But it was Mario, the father of the current owner Franco, who had focused the business on viticulture, which spanned all 10 hectares of the estate.
Recently, Franco completely renovated the cellar, equipped it with modern appliances and excavated a large room with the oak barrels, without sudden temperature changes.
National and international appreciation for this small-scale winery
The range of wines is produced from the typical vines of the region, but the three most interesting wines are Friulano, fine and delicate, Pinot Grigio and Pinot Bianco, two super classic vines from the area where the name Pinot stands for 'little pine cone', which when vinified wisely, turns into one of the best wines in the world. The grapes are hand-picked and treated with the greatest care. Taste is the trademark of his wines that are born in one of the most beautiful wine-growing regions of Italy, the Collio. Here, where the microclimate is mild and particularly favorable, and where the soil, locally called "ponca", consists of marl and sandstone that guarantee nutrition and minerality, unique wines are born capable of surprising with their character and personality. In the meantime, the wines of the Toros have successfully crossed the borders of Italy and have received well-deserved national and international recognition.
