Count Brandino Brandolini, a native Venetian, grows top quality Cabernet Franc, Refosco and Merlot grapes at his family’s picture-perfect Vistorta and Cordignano estates in the Friuli district of northeast Italy. From these historic properties, he proudly presents Treanni (treh-ahn-ee), or “three years,” an inventive red blend uniting select batches of wine from three consecutive vintages.

Much as a painter relies on different hues from a palette to create a work of art, Brandolini judiciously brings together the freshness of a young wine, the complexity and concentration of a two-year-old wine, and the elegance of a mature wine to yield this seamless composition of aroma, flavor and texture. Vibrant and youthful, yet captivatingly complex and refined, Treanni is designed to inspire the senses.

Production Area
Country: Italy
Region: Friuli-Venezia Giulia

The result is a non-vintage red wine comprising Refosco, Merlot and Cabernet Franc from three consecutive vintages.
