Why this wine made the cut…
An exemplar to the quality and intensity of northern Italian wine.
GRAPE VARIETAL(S)
Friuliano
Free-oo-LYA-no
Better known by its former moniker, ‘Tocai Friuliano’, Friuliano is native to Friuli, northern Italy exhibiting a perfume, and pear-like aromas with slight bitter almond notes on the finish. It can greatly range in style from Light and Crisp to more Balance & Finesse or even slightly Rich & Full Palate Characters--the crisp acidity offsets the potential richness.
Riesling
REES-ling
Riesling is one of the greatest, long-lived white wines in the world, highly expressive of the nuances of its respective terroir. The wines are generally relatively low to moderate in alcohol with crisp acidity and full of flavor and extract. Stylistically, it can vary from bone dry to quite sweet, and with age can develop intense aromatics. Because Riesling is so expressive of the terroir from where it is grown, it can show a potential mix of floral, fruity, intensely mineral, smoky and/or spicy aromas and flavors depending on the soil, climate, and exposure.
Sauvignon Blanc
So-vee-NYON BLON
Sauvignon Blanc is grown throughout the world, and can have a wide range of aromas and flavors that vary depending on the terroir. It is most famous for White Bordeaux and the wines of the Loire Valley. The wines are typically Bright & Crisp, dry, and can vary from citrus fruit and pitted fruit, grass, mineral, herbs, and gooseberries. It is versatile with food, pairs particularly well with herbs and garlic, and is most famous for how well it marries with fresh goat cheese.
