Winemaker's Notes

Straw yellow in color, its fine varietal character makes it the quintessential classic Friulan wine. The bouquet is delicate and clean with echoes of lime blossom, fennel and bitter almonds (typical of Tocai). On the palate, the wine shows excellent structure with flavors of apples, pears and almonds. Recommended with risotto, Montasio (made with friulan cheese) is the local favorite. Also pairs well with cream sauces on pasta, fish and grilled meats.
