Looking for a buttery California Chardonnay? This is not it. Friuli’s chardonnays have an entirely different palate than a California Chard, mainly due to the fact that Friuli’s Chardonnays are entirely unoaked, bringing to bear a completely different taste, like nothing you have ever experienced. The 2015 vintage received the prestigious "Tre Bicchieri" award in the 2017 competition. This 2016 vintage is sure to follow suit.
This wine from di Lenardo, a family that has been making wine since 1878, is the only one in Friuli to use only vines of the “Musque” clone, meaning that this wine is highly aromatic and unique in its composition. Di Lenardo is acknowledged as one of the best-quality brands in the Friuli Grave area and the most technologically-advanced. Since 2009, the winery has used only use solar energy to run its cellar. Environmentally conscious, equally advanced in winemaking, try this little wine for a great surprise that will change your tastes in Chardonnay!
Tired of drinking flat, sour, flavorless prosecco and want to try the real Italian kind? San Martino’s Prosecco DOC Millesimato from Treviso is intensely aromatic and crisp, with hints of green apple and banana that will leave your taste buds refreshed, not overwhelmed. Millestimato means that all the grapes used are from the same year - an indication of an excellent harvest. The harmony of smell and taste in this prosecco and its sleek flavor, not to mention great price, will make you a fan of this Champagne alternative.
Italian pinot nero? Just give it a try! The pride and joy of this winery, this wine really sets itself apart, even from the California pinots - dry and light, this is a real surprise! Only exceptional vintages are considered for wine making.
Friuli does Merlot differently. Not your typical California merlot, not overly jammy but with raspberry and plum undertones. Spices and fruit abound in this dryer merlot, sure to be a conversation starter.
A perfect blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, which most commonly appears in blended red wines, where it adds herbaceous accents of tobacco and dark spice. In Friuli, this blend is a daily staple, though 100% Cabernet Francs are also common. Enjoy the balance in this wine from the young but promising winery.
