From ancient viticultural times, Pignolo (from the Friulan dialect “pignul”) is certainly worthy of great emphasis and diffusion. Proof that this autochthonous grape variety is old and valued can be found in the numerous quotations by ancient scribes, not least the Abbot Gio Batta Michieli who in his “Bacco in Friuli”, published at the end of the XVII century wrote the following: “...and I should always like to be alone with a full glass of good Pignolo”.



There is a place in the eastern hills of Friuli where the heart meets the land and where the values of a family find their most sincere expression in producing great wines. 

IL RONCAL is a small estate of 20 hectares, terraced on the Montebello Hill, in the heart of the Colli Orientali del Friuli, only 3 km away from the historical center of Cividale del Friuli (UNESCO site). Here Martina Moreale carries on the project of her husband Roberto, founder of the winery. Day after day, the diligent care of this land offers its best fruits, harvested to create high-quality wines. Simply the excellence.
