Pinot Grigio is this wine’s skeleton, as it brings structure, depth, softness and heat. Traminer is important for what concerns aromatic qualities and nose sensations, while Riesling makes it reach a balance with acidity in order to exalt its complexity. The first two grape varieties are late harvested and are fermented and matured in oak barrels. Three very different grapes are used to produce a unique wine, made by the combination of “Mediterranean” surmaturation notes on a liquer-sweet register of “Nordic” characteristics.
Lis Neris is located in the center of the famous wine growing region of Friuli, in the village of San Lorenzo, between the Slovenian border to the North and the right bank of the Isonzo river to the South.
More than 60 hectares of vineyards are planted in the most beautiful part of a broad shelf of calcareous gravel, dragged down by the melt waters from the glaciers of the Eastern Alps. San Lorenzo, which is a cooler area, is where most of the white varieties are grown while Corona and Romans, are warmer zones to the West of the winery, and where the reds are mainly planted.
It is here that, since 1879, four generations of the Lis Neris family have worked passionately to help create and develop one of Friuli’s most representative wine estates.
