These lands have been known for viticulture since ancient Roman times. Canus is a small family business that celebrates tradition, terroir and territory, all washed down with a good dose of Friulian know-how. Here from Canus the intrinsic qualities of Friuli are celebrated, favoring the cultivation of indigenous vines such as Friulano, Ribolla and Pignolo, without neglecting more international varieties such as Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay and Merlot.
The wines are characterized by a full body and a relatively strong alcohol content. The vines are grown with Guyot and Spurred Cordon systems, with a planting density of 5-6.000 vines per hectare. The grapes are selected and harvested by hand, in boxes. The pressing is soft and delicate. The vinification, personalized for each variety, is carefully followed, and the fermentation appropriately thermoregulated. The maturation of the wines takes place both in steel and in wood. The reds, given their particular structure, are refined in barriques and tonneaux for long periods of time, up to 3 or 4 years.
