Excellent value Friulano from an 8 x times consecutive Tre Bicchieri award winning estate (2016-2023)
For a better understanding of what makes Friulano tick, Tom Hyland & Ian D'Agata two of the biggest Italian focussed wine writers and judges have kindly provided a brief guide below:
''Friulano is known for aromatic notes of golden apples, white peaches and even thyme; It is the classic dry Friuli white.'' Tom Hyland, Chicago Tribune
''Friulano gives lovely lemony and delicately herbal whites that can be surprisingly deep and rich and can take a gentle oaking that helps deliver startlingly large amounts of complexity.'' Ian D'Agata
One of the finest value Friulano's comes from the 70+ year old family run Zorzettig Estate who make their prized Friulano in the historic Friuli Colli Orientali appellation. The 2021 release has a fruit driven nose with classic crisp white fruits on display. Along with its pear, citrus and apple notes it has nice texture and mineral tones with a delightfully clean refreshing finish. From just $27.95 their 2021 edition offer's tremendous value in the current climate for one of Italy's best white varietal's.
