Tasting Notes

Well-rounded and full-flavoured thanks to nicely gauged acidity and generous extract. Almondiness underpins the lingering aromatic length. The Tocai Friulano grape makes this wine an unrivalled partner for air-dried prosciutto crudo di San Daniele ham and delicate cured meats such as culatello. A match made in heaven if served with herb omelettes and risottos or egg and asparagus-based dishes. Vegetable soups and Friuli’s traditional bean and barley soup.

Reviews & Scores

Stainless steel. A little vomity/reductive on the nose. Wonderful palate of mandarin and slow to unfurl.
16/20 Points, Jancis Robinson

TASTING NOTES

Yellow with green hues; clean and bright. This wine particularly stands out for its great aromatic intensity, with marked hints of stone fruit (peaches) and white fruit (ripe apples and quinces) against a citrus background of lemon tree leaves. Big, flavoursome and fresh in the mouth, with a well-integrated acidity. Fruity and particularly persistent finish.
