Just to give you an idea of the historical background, the estate has been in the de Puppi family for generations. Of Tuscan origins, the de Puppi’s descend from the renowned Guidi family, lords of Poppi (Arezzo), but the war between the Guelfi’s and Ghibellini’s in the XIIth and XIIIth century created a conflict within the family and, as a result, a branch left Tuscany and settled in Friuli; thus creating a new story.
Once established in the region, the family took part in the council of the nobility in Cividale. Land owners and leaders of mercenary troops, they gave to Friuli a series of prominent figures who distinguished themselves in politics, law and in the ecclesiastical hierarchy.
In recognition of their important contribution, in 1703 Leopold I of Austria honored the family with the title of Counts of the Holy Roman Empire.
But beyond history, the family has always played an active role in viticulture, now combining innovation with a firm belief in tradition and respect for the land, all managed by a young generation. We own 30 hectares splitted in two different are – as: the first surrounds the winery in Moimacco, the second is in Rosazzo and Manzano, with a total production of about 80.000 bottles and two different selections.
The de Puppi one is the basic, characterized by fresher and more easy-drinkable wines; instead the Rosa Bosco is the higher selection with more structure and complexity, aged in barrels for a few months/years.
