Pignolo

An ancient native black grape variety of Friuli. It is believed that it was already known and grown before 1600, particularly in the territories of Albana, Premariacco, Prepotto and Rosazzo. It was originated in the vineyards of the Abbey of Rosazzo, and was most likely grown by Benedictine monks. With the recovery in 1978 of the only two vines remaining at the Abbey, it was saved from certain extinction. Nowadays, it is still mainly grown in its area of origin. With their exceptional rarity and finesse, the grapes are used to make a wine for aging. In 1930, Dalmasso called it a “luxury” wine, which is tannic and offers intense aromas.
