The ancient tradition of the wines of the Treviso hills gets a new lease of life in the Conegliano Hills DOCG, which include the Bianco Colli di Conegliano, the Rosso Colli di Conegliano, the Refrontolo Passito and the Torchiato di Fregona.
All the wines with the Colli di Conegliano designation share a particular attention in the vineyard care: the most favourable lands are selected, with a high density in areas that are not overly expansive and have a moderate grape yield per vine stock.
The Colli di Conegliano Bianco (white wine) is produced from a blend of Manzoni Bianco, Pinot Bianco and/or Chardonnay, Sauvignon and/or Riesling renano. It is straw yellow in colour, has a spicy aroma and a full-bodied, dry, exquisite and velvety taste. It is a complete and elegant top wine.
The Colli di Conegliano Rosso (red wine) involves the use of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Marzemino and Merlot. It is ruby red in colour and tending to garnet, it has a winey and herbal aroma with an intensity that accentuates with age. Full-bodied, lightly tannic, flavoursome and dry. This wine is ideal for meat-based lunches.
The Refrontolo Passito is a dessert wine. It is ruby red in colour with a glimmer of violet, pleasant, with a particularly rich aroma with hints of blackberry.
The Torchiato di Fregona is obtained from wilted grapes pressed during Easter week which is why it is also known as ‘Vin Santo’ (Holy wine). It is a golden colour with an acacia or linden honey aroma. It is ideal alongside desserts or matured and blue cheeses.
