Azienda Agricola Scarbolo is a family-operated vineyard, with 25 hectars of cultivated land located on the right bank of the Torre and 5 km south of the Colli Orientali. The terrain is of alluvial origins, and is composed of clay and gravel deposited during the Quaternaria era. The climate is ventilated and dry, with cooling winds from the east and warm sea air from the south. The sea and mountains assist in creating the ideal climate for viticulture, warm days and cool nights, preserving aromas and flavours by allowing the grapes to mature less rapidly. The grapes grown are those of Friulian tradition, Tocai Friulano, Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The vineyards are located in close proximity to the cellar and are cultivated according to the Guyot training system.
