Friuli Aquileia, Udine

La Roncaia

Ramandolo 2011

Beautiful amber color. Straight out of Jurassic Park.

Candied ginger, citrus, roasted almonds, and mango chutney.

Oh man. This is a flavor bomb. Bursting of apricot and tropicana. Guava. That is the primary note. Feels like I’m eating a Romeo & Juliet at a Cuban hole in the wall in Miami.

That’s all I can taste now. Wonderful, goodbye.

Ronchi di Cialla

Colli Orientali del Friuli Schioppettino di Cialla 2009

Velvet, crushed rose petals, blackberries, pine with frost upon it. What a rockstar bouquet.

Wow. Right up my alley. Well balanced. Fruit forward, sure, but the emphasis here is that undercurrent spice kick of star anise, black peppercorn, and nutmeg. All the right feels here. A brush of acidity, and just the right dryness to make you lick your lips.

The Recipient

Friuli Grave Pinot Grigio 2019

Light-bodied, somewhat crisp, somewhat sweet, fruity finish.

The label says "Aromas of white pear, apple and a hint of sweet spice. Bursting with crisp and fresh fruit flavor and a long bright finish.

Really pretty nose of pineapple, tropical flowers, almond powder, baked goods. Hint of oak and butter on mid palate leading to a medium plus finish. Deeper gold color. Feels like not enough acidity. — 4 days ago

Colli Orientali del Friuli Refosco 2014

Buon refosco!
Maybe lacking a bit of intensity on the nose.
Nice mouthful: dark fruits, good amount of wood, soft tannins, long lasting
