This is a sensational bottle of old-vine Friulano, perfectly mature, combining freshness and nervosity (candied lime, pear, melon), dense exotic notes (tropical flowers, pine-apple, maracuja) and a gorgeously funky minerality (flint, wool, wet rocks).
Even better than the Friulanos from Miami that I tasted.

The 2019 Studio di Bianco opens slowly in the glass, remarkably pretty and refined, with dusty yellow flowers that give way to hints of flint and freshly sliced nectarine. Further coaxing brings forward hints of dried peaches and incense. It’s silky and polished in feel, yet youthfully inward, with mineral-tinged orchard fruits and inner florals that somehow have a dusty character. This tapers off structured yet long with a sweet melon note that lingers on and on. The 2019 is completely harmonious with a stunning blend of sapid fruit and brilliant acidity. It should mature beautifully in collectors’ cellars. This was tasted both from a freshly opened bottle and one that was opened 24 hours prior, which only helped the wine to blossom further. The Studio di Bianco is a blend of 40% Friulano, 35% Sauvignon and 35% Riesling, depending on the vintage. (Eric Guido, Vinous, April 2022)

Restrained. Wouldn't peg it for a sav blanc blind. More minerally with perhaps some pear- not a lot of fruit but very good. Might have been more fruit had I drank this a few years ago? — 6 years ago
Great juice. Round with nice weight. — 3 years ago
Nice almost Sangiovese but lighter nose, nice medium yellow color with a medium body with Medium body with some complexity & some retained acidity & a fairly long aftertaste. It could use a few more years in a cool cellar. — 5 years ago
