Nero Magis

Veneto, Italy

Friuli’s Colli Orientali DOC zone embodies the region’s wine history. Many native grape varieties still grow in local vineyards, including the noblest of all, Pignolo. This is why Nero Magis chose this area for a wine project that has the ambition to be unique and universal.

The vines are planted on the hills of Orsaria, in the municipality of Premariacco, with the course of the Natisone as their boundary. They command a magnificent view of the Colli Orientali, where the church of Orsaria rises above the horizon, and, eastwards in the distance, the hill of Rosazzo

Turning slightly westwards, we see the massive outline of Cividale cathedral and, one after another, the vineyard-covered hills lead our gaze as far as Ramandolo. The secret behind these wines is in the land. Here, they reap the benefits of a unique microclimate between the sea (only about twenty kilometres away) and the snowy Alps, which form a spectacular backdrop.

Great wines are very often made where beauty is an integral part of the land: unique and, therefore, universal.

90 Points From Vinous

In keeping with the Magis philosophy – to be unique and universal – we have combined Friulano, indigenous to and representative of the Region, with Chardonnay and Pinot Bianco, which are international in style. This long-living wine maintains its elegance and freshness, its firm backbone and long aromatic persistence.

94 Points From Vinous

The 2015 Neromagis Rosso is composed of 60% Merlot and 40% Pignolo, which spends twenty-four months maturing in a combination of new and second-pass barrique. The bouquet is lifted, feminine and truly gorgeous, where I’m finding crushed raspberry and plum sauce accented by spiced orange, tobacco leaf, dark chocolate and sweet roses.

95 Points From Vinous

This is a linear, heavyweight wine full of vigour – for its assertive but well-knit tannins – with olfactory notes dominated by spices, echoed by exceptional length. A wine with the gift of longevity. Therefore, a wine to wait for.
