Editor note: Translate to English Fester, einen Hauch metallisch-würziger Duft nach Maulbeeren und Brombeeren mit getrocknet-kräuteriger und ganz leicht floraler Würze, ein wenig Sauerkirschen und mineralischen Spuren. Fest gewirkte, reife, saftige, ein wenig kompottige Frucht, röstige Holzaromen mit gewürzigen Noten und Kakao, jugendliches, dabei recht mürbes Tannin, ganz leicht sandig, nachhaltig am Gaumen, etwas alkoholwarm, pfeffrige Spuren, gewisse Tiefe, viel Kraft, sehr guter, ein wenig röstiger und schokoladiger Abgang.

DOC area (also Friuli Colli Orientali) for red and white wines in the Friuli Venezia Giulia region; close to the border with Slovenia and Austria. The name means "eastern hills of Friuli".

However, while Udine became Italian as early as 1866, Gorizia did not join Italy until after the First World War in the early 1920s.
