La Tunella Bianco Sesto 2008 boasts a straw-yellow color, with greenish reflections. A wine of great substance, this white blend has a refined and elegant bouquet of confectionary, vanilla and acacia blossoms, intermingling with the vivacious fresh notes of fruit and white flowers. The palate opens with a delicate, full character, which is both supple and flavorful at the same time. A wine of great character, the distinguishing characteristics of each varietal stand out in its persistent finish, with a slight almond note from the Friulano and the fresh sensations of the Ribolla.
"A 50/50 blend of Friulano and ribolla gialla fermented in large Slovenian oak barrels, Biancosesto is packed with citrus flavors, from orange to pink grapefruit and lemon. It's substantial and ripe while remaining fresh and as clean as rainwater. The texture is round, the flavors clear and direct. For braised polpo."
Wine & Spirits
"Gorgeous bouquet of white spring flowers, white fruit and hints of vanilla and
almond. Crisp, juicy white fruit flavors balanced by flinty minerality and a hint of
almond. Both elegant and supple from entry to close.”"
The Wine News
"If you want to taste the true flavors of Northeast Italy, we recommend you try this wine. Biancosesto is a highly successful marriage of Friulano and Ribolla Gialla (two leading indigenous grapes) that delivers intense aromas of passion fruit, peach, honeysuckle, lemon zest and candied fruit. What sets it apart however is its soft, creamy texture. "
