Sensory profile The luminous amber of this wine is shot through with flashes of pure warmth. The nose features a crisp florality, suggesting acacia and lime blossoms, then segues into riper impressions of almond, dried apricot, and syrupped pear, followed by more delicate, luscious essences of date, dried fig, and honey. Hovering throughout is a refined whiff of spice, such as clove and nutmeg, which imparts to the nose a lightly peppery note. In the mouth, warmth and astringency admirably bolster the other components, all in beautiful proportion, in the fore-palate. A fine aromatic complex follows in the mid-palate, conveying mixed nuts and dried fruit, impressions that persist even into the finish.


Pairings The most successful food pairings will be those in which the wine acts as a foil to more or less savoury dishes, such as prosciutto and fresh figs, for example, or smoked trout, and above all blue cheeses, especially aged versions. It is a delicious partner to traditional Friulan pasties, such as the gubana nut roll, and similar filled biscuits, as well as with almost all dry pastry sweets and biscuits from other regions.
