Blend of the white varietals cru Ribolla Gialla, Tocai, Malvasia, and Picolit.
Beautiful golden yellow in color, brilliant and luminous. The nose is intense and complex, with notes of ripe fruit–Mediterranean and tropical–and dried flowers, barely touched by a subtle veil of vanilla. Apples, bananas, hazelnuts, genista and passionflower stand out. On the palate, it's pure velvet, showing perfect balance of flavors, delicate aromatic qualities, endless persistence. Excellent with chickpea puree and sautéed octopus with rosemary.
"Very ripe, with apple tart and toffee on the nose. Full-bodied, with a very ripe, almost late-harvest character. Impressive and rich. Multidimensional. Great with rich food. Mostly Tocai Friulano, with Ribolla Gialla, Malvasia Istriana and Picolit. Drink now. 200 cases made"
"A selection of friulano blended with ribolla gialla, malvasia Istriana and picolit, this grows at an 18.5-acre vineyard in the Collio. It's fermented and aged in large Slavonian oak barrels, producing a deep golden wine with a pale, toasty sweetness. There's cool, white cherry fruit and a soft acidity lending shape to the broad flavors. Decant it for a woodsy mushroom risotto.
