Astonishing. Great balance of acidity and sugar! — 4 years ago
The 2018 Vespa Bianco is a blend of Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc grapes, grown in the hills of Premariacco and Cividale. The wine is fermented in half stainless steel tanks and half oak casks. Aging in the bottle lasts a year before release. A good portion of the lees - the spent yeast cells - are left in the wine, which enhances the mouthfeel.
This beautiful wine carries a golden hue in the glass and has a nose which features salinity as well as fruit. The aromas range from pears to guava to beeswax to lanolin. On the palate, there is bountiful salinity and minerality to meet the tropical fruit flavors. Acidity is fresh and zingy, too, so food pairing is simple.

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.
