Wine type: white wine IGT - Vespa Bianco.
Vintage and alcohol content: 2017 - 14°
Region: Buttrio/Premariaccio, Colli Orientali del Friuli DOC.
Grape/blend: 45% Chardonnay, 45% Sauvignon Blanc, 10% Picolit.
Type soil: limestone marl.
Colour: straw yellow.
Aroma: a tightly wound balance of minerality and citrus, evolving over time into a more viscous expression of wild flowers, clover honey and mature pear.
Tasting notes: the palate sensations are more like those of a red wine. Its tannic structure and acidic backbone lend it not only immediate impact but also a long life. Vespa Bianco can be further aged up to 7-10 years after the vintage.
Serving suggestions: great with roasted turkey, duck and pork. Shellfish, especially lobster and scallops. Mushroom based dishes, like mushroom risotto. Elegant cheese-dressed pastas. Serving 10°C.
