The Zamò Vigne is located in the northeast of Italy in the province of Udine, Manzano, in the popular resort of Rosazzo
The great advantage of the estate lies in the possibility to draw on three different terroirs: Rosazzo, Buttrio and Rocca Bernarda.
Rosazzo is perhaps one of the most beautiful hills in Friuli and from the top, on a clear day, you can admire the mountains and the Adriatic Sea, which is quite close as the crow flies. Here the beauty of the countryside comes together with a particular microclimate. The combination of daily temperature ranges, the magnificent exposure of all the vineyards and the soil – an Eocene marl poor in organic nutrients but rich in mineral elements – makes the area perfect for the cultivation of vines.
It is in the 25 hectares of land owned on Rosazzo that the majority of red grapes that give broad, powerful and energetic wines are grown. Among the white grapes, on the other hand, we have Friulano, which draws the characteristic originality that distinguishes it from the colour of these hills.
The little town of Buttrio is home to one of the oldest Italian wine fairs and the fame of the vineyards on its hill dates back to before memory. Thanks to the exposure, the soil and the age of the vineyards planted (the oldest on the estate), the Friulano grape and red varieties such as Merlot, Cabernet and Refosco dal peduncolo rosso achieve their finest expression in these five hectares of land.
The vineyards situated in the 15 hectares of land owned at Rocca Bernarda (some of which are very old), are about 140 metres above sea level; exposed east, southeast and southwest, they benefit from the partial influence of the sea, but, above all, from the daily temperature ranges, which are more accentuated here due to its position in relation to the canal of the Bora, a wind which is cool in summer and blows from northeast.
