The Vintage Tunina from the Jermann winery is a blend of Sauvignon and Chardonnay with the addition of Ribolla Gialla, Malvasia and a small percentage of native sweet wine. The winery started working on this wine in 1973 and was put into production for the first time in 1975.
The name Tunina derives from the old owners of the land who dedicated the vineyard to the poorest lover of Casanova; she was called Antonia but was known to everybody as Tunina. Tunina was an housekeeper in Venice
The harvest of the grapes used for this wine is also particular, in fact the grapes are harvested about two weeks later than the normal harvest. After the winemaking, the must rests partly in steel tanks and partly in large Austrian wooden barrels (60 – 80 hl). After assembly and bottling, the wine rests a few months in the cellar before being placed on the market.
Brilliant straw yellow with golden highlights. The aroma is intense, very elegant and persistent; notes of honey and ripe peach, intertwine with hints of wild flowers that leave room for light scents of saffron. Dry and soft on the palate, this wine is very harmonious and pleasantly persistent.
It goes well with pasta dishes with truffles, fish, especially if cooked in the oven and white meat. Must try with salmon but also as a meditation wine.

The history of the Jermann winery dates back to the late 1800s when Anton Jermann moved to the Collio area in Friuli Venezia Giulia and began to cultivate the vines. The real turning point, however, took place between 1971 and 1973 when Silvio Jermann, the first graduate in oenology of the family, returning from various experiences abroad, completely revolutionized the winery.
