Giovanni PuiattiWebsite : WWW.PUIATTI.COM
Giovanni Puiatti’s father Vittorio developed what is now Italy’s dominant winemaking technique for white wines, frequently called the “Metodo Puiatti.” Only 100% stainless steel is used during both the fermentation and ageing of the wines. This method is currently so well-entrenched that it is easy to forget that it was once considered revolutionary and is responsible for the super-clean, bright flavours of Puiatti’s wines.
The winery is the first cellar in Friuli to be constructed using only steel, concrete and glass, reflecting his motto of ‘Save a Tree, Drink Puiatti’ – in other words, no oak is used in any of the wines. Puiatti is now part of an important wine group in Italy called Bertani Domaines.

Pale in colour, with fresh grassy notes and hints of green apples. The palate has a touch of honeyed richness but is fresh and steely, making it a wonderful aperitif.
