Sensory profile This Friulano seems to emanate vital energy, with a vibrant straw-yellow heightened by a pale green that creates a shimmering “gold in the glass” effect. On the nose, an aromatic cascade is equally rich, flowing, and intriguingly alive, so much so that, rapt by this multi-faceted, protean symphony, it is initially difficult to capture singular elements. Once this “sensory flood” subsides somewhat, the scented waves coalesce into alternating expressions of smooth almond, ripe apricot, mountain-grown hay, fragrant pear and apple, vanilla, coriander, and the like…, a veritable explosion of stunning natural, sensory colours. Upon entry, our so-called “superior senses” re-confirm the harmonious aromatic fresco just experienced, then quickly turn attention to the mineral essences rising high to the mid-palate and finally drive downwards and into the spiritous, pleasantly bitterish notes that mark a lengthy, clean-edged conclusion. The final result is one of classic nobility, a quality that is likewise the hallmark of the suggested pairings.


Pairings A “must-try” at least once in life is paired with the aromatic depth of tartare, whose marbled sweetness conjures up roasted nuts and fruits, and whose texture, with its tactile sublimity, melts into inimitability. With such a partner, Friulano 2018 will gather, concentrate, heighten, release, and deliver a paradisaical bitter-sweet gift.
