Gorizia is situated between the natural and ancient valleys of Isonzo and Vipacco. Sheltered to the North by the majestic Julian Alps and in uenced by the nearby Adriatic Sea, bordered by the Isonzo River, overlooking the gentle Isonzo’s plain.
Overtime the green Isonzo river, in remote ages, crea- ted and shaped this territory, offering unique features to the vine.
The family has worked this delighted land with passion for three generations.
In the exclusive preserve of men, it was a courageous women by the name of Bianca that began arming the land.
And after her, came the daughter that went by the name of Anna, and without fear, she travelled on new paths to relaunch and expand the family business. Now is the turn of the grandchildren, Enrico and Carlo Alberto Agostinis, to apply the same richness and passion to those that preceded them.
And it is to the memory and love of our mother and grandmother that we dedicate the name of the line of wines known as Amandum.
“Aesontium sacrum solvit votum”
Lucio Anneo Seneca
THE VINEYARDS, THE WINES
Isonzo river has created the Isonzo plain, giving it a superficial reddish clay layer, rich in iron oxides and other minerals.
The high Julian Alps surrounding the north of Gorizia, provide shelter from the cold northern winds and ensure, together with the close warm Adriatic Sea, a temperate climate. The Vipacco Valley offers significant night temperatures, wich gives the wine it’s intense and elegant fragrances. In this context, the vine prospers due the excellent geology.
In 2013, in these ancient vineyards simply natural
grapes are produced in an environmental and sustainable way. By adopting traditional farming systems, plant care, and the use of the best technologies in the cellar, the low yields allow you to enjoy the results of absolute excellence.
In everyone’s life there are people, occasions, places and things that demand and deserve your love.
It is with this hope that you enjoy and gain pleasure from these superb and delicious wines Amandum.
“Blossoming flower if the root believes in the sun.”
