Region: Veneto

For over a century, the history of the Russolo family has played a key role in the enology of eastern Veneto. The business started in 1974, when Iginio and his wife Sonia gave life to their project. The first turning point occurred in 1990, when they bought the vineyards in San Quirino. In 2000 the new wine cellar was buit and the business permanently moved to the “terre magre”.

From some years now, the siblings Antonella and Rino took the lead of the winery. With the support of their parents, they focused on fresh, mineral and fragrant wines. The terroir of San Quirino is located in the Upper eastern Friuli, close to the Friulian Dolomites. Its microclimate is influenced by a strong temperature range, since there are no hills as a barrier between mountains and the plateau. The big quantity of pebbles in the soil guarantees a great minerality. This terroir is expertly interpreted by Russolo both in white and red wines.
