Wine type: white wine IGT.
Vintage and alcohol content: 2013 - 15°
Region: Buttrio/Premariaccio, Colli Orientali del Friuli DOC.
Grape/blend: 100% Friulano (10% appassimento).
Type soil: limestone marl.
Colour: intense golden yellow.
Aroma: the nose is ripe and powerful, showing mature mandarin oranges, melons and pears.
Tasting notes: similar in flavour and complexity to a “Grand Cru” Alsatian white. Full-bodied, with a thick, oily palate and toasted almond. There is a lovely bitter almond note on the finish.
Serving suggestions: it can be served with frito, scampi and raw fish in its youth, but is also fantastic with hot peppers and very spicy dishes (Indian and Thai). As it ages, it becomes a magnificent soft cheese companion - try it with the likes of Taleggio or Robiola. Serving 10/12°C.
