JermannThe region of Friuli boasts an increasing
number of prominent wineries, but Silvio Jermann remains
the shining star. He owns forty acres of estate vineyards
that surround the family home in Farra d'Isonzo, where he
created a new breed of big, fruity, ageworthy Friulian wines
(outside the regulations set by the DOC). 'Vintage Tunina'
is his most acclaimed wine and 'Capo Martino' and 'Dreams'
have also distinguished themselves as a few of Italy's greatest
and best-known white wines.
In the sixties, avant garde producers like
Schiopetto and Felluga created a style of crisp, clean wines
with the introduction of stainless steel tanks and the elimination
of oxidation in the winemaking process. This modern style
eventually gave birth to the Super White movement with the
release of Silvio Jermann’s blended Vintage Tunina.
These complex blends from producers like Vie di Romans,
La Castellada, Lis Neris, Villa Russiz, and Bastianich continue
to capture international attention with their exotically
aromatic or full-bodied charm. The 'Vintage Tunina' is probably
the most successful wine in Friulian history, and is often
referred to as the Tignanello of white Italian wines. While
his legendary neighbors, Schiopetto and Puiatti, are responsible
for getting the Super White movement started, Jermann is
the one that kicked the door open.
Were dreams, now it is just wine!
