Baracca Colli Orientali Del Friuli Chardonnay 2018

Jan A

Italian Sunday with the French part of my family.

Yes this is great stuff. This is a big buttery chardonnay and all about roundness and viscosity with plenty of acidic backbone. I also get a ginger note. Not very mineral but also not flabby. Will improve with further age when the acidic component will integrate further. 95+

Love this. Totally agree give it 12/18 months and this will rock ‘n’ roll

There is a level of density and class to the Rias Biaxas of Nanclares which seems to elevate the wines above the rest of the appellation. Quintessential but out of the ordinary. Reminds me of the ways that Dagueneau or Miani transcends. This 2013 has pedigree and such a youthful fervor, no hurry here. — 2 years ago

Nanclares is elite juice for sure

I like these northeastern whites as they are an alternative to dropping the change for the Pepe's or Valentini's of Abruzzo. Whites that are serious. This was a nice compliment to seared cod served with a deconstructed gazpacho. Boozy on the nose like some whites. Was a bit reduced, but after the first half hour it blew off. Really nice mouthfeel, which you don't always get with whites. I could really use more of this. Gotta try a Miani though. See you soon.....

Absolutely one of my favorite wineries in the world. Their SB is magnificent vintage after vintage.

I love this wine but the 2011 is perhaps past it’s prime. Tannins are smoothed out, for sure. Overly tart. Should be more full and mellowed. I had enough of this, and the vintages around it, that I think this is bottle variation. — 10 months ago

Colli Orientali Del Friuli Chardonnay

Just as baffled as every time when stripping down a bottle of Miani; how the heck is this possible…!? ’15 Chardonnay; Big, bold and broad shouldered but with a vibrant and linear freshness to it, with its trade mark electric minerality, both on the nose and the palate. Hitting all the clusters with full power in complete balance thanks to the sharp and vibrant mineral backbone . The 14.5 (!) % abv is barely being noticed, more than acting as a supporting role in the unity by providing even further structure throughout the finish. A powerlifter that is out-dancing the ballerina. Rating is conservative... — 3 years ago

Palis Colli Orientali del Friuli Chardonnay 2015


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. — 8 months ago

Vistorta Friuli Grave Merlot 2012

If you’re gonna drink Friuli merlot you could do much worse (and somewhat better? Miani?) than this...rich and velvety, not a hint of tannin. Beautiful woodsy nose. — 2 years ago

What's the story with the alcohol content? 11-14%?


Saurint Colli Orientali Del Friuli Sauvignon Blanc

Open knit aromas flows into a sleek profile Chardonnay which, considering the vintage (2014) is astonishingly rich and pure. Yes, it does miss the elite precision of the 2013 counterpart but is damn tasty. — 5 years ago
