Ambassador of Friuli on the table of the kings, Popes and emperors since the time in which it was grown by the Count Fabio Asquini on the hills of Fagagna. The Picolit is the real pearl amongst Friuli‘s wines.
It is not that widespread because of a genetic desease, which at the same time is the reason why a universe of flavours is concentrated in its few grapes.
Its a golden yellow wine, pleasantly sweet with flavours of peach jam, candied fruit and acacia honey .
Picolit Valchiarò is great with fois gras and also as a meditation wine.

Valchiaro grave; winery was settled in 1991 thanks to five friends who had in common a real love for the viticulture and good wine. Beside the hard work in the field and the passion and dedication for their grapes, there are three main technical things that make their wine excellent: the Guyot vine training, the Simonit-Sirch pruning method and the advice of one of the best Italian oenologists: Gianni Menotti. The winery harvests around twelve hectares of vineyards divided in two areas: Togliano and Torreano six kilometres far one from the other and with completely different subsoils. The area of Torreano presents an alluvial soil due to the fact that the valley is crossed by the Chiarò’s creek (the company takes its name after it), this kind of soil gives a very good wine with a pleasant minerality perception. This area is excellent for Pinot Grigio, Nexus, Friulano and Verduzzo Passito. On the other hand,the area of Togliano is characterised by a subsoil mixted with soil and clay. Here the best results are given by wines like the Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso, Merlot and Sauvignon. In order to improve the quality of red wines at the end of July until midst of August the bunch thinning is applied, this technique allows the grape to improve its sugar content hence its wine aromas and colours
