2016 Rocca Bernarda Novecento. Venezia Giulia IGT.
75 % Friulano, 24 % Ribolla Gialla , 1 % Picolit.
Winery established in 1559. Sandstone and marl soil. Stainless steel vats then the wine is rested 6 months on it’s lees for an amazing texture.
A nose of lemon balm, Asian pear and citrus rind.
Great mouth feel with flavours of golden apple, honey and pink grapefruit with a distinct minerality and acidity on the long finish.
We had ebi dashi kimchi hot pot with fresh shucked whole oysters thrown in.
A great match.

A tame skin-contact bianco. — 4 years ago
The gold-tinted wine has some frizzante - fine, tiny bubbles clinging to the glass. The nose offers lemon, lime, apricot and a very earthy salinity. The palate is as mineral-driven as they come - lots of wet stone and citrus at play here, along with a nice bit of acidity. The savory aspect of this wine simply knocks me out. — a month ago

Ian D'Agata believes Picolit is the most noble of indigenous Friuli bianchi. This is very good indeed. 🍋🍋🍍🍍⚡️⚡️🌼🌼🐝🍼🍯🥛🥊🥇🎷 — 4 years ago

Fresh, not too sweet, excellent with fish or just for a few glasses in a good company! One of the best Slovene wines in my opinion! — 3 years ago
