Ronchi di Cialla

Ciallabianco Colli Orientali del Friuli-Cialla Ribolla Gialla Blend 2017

Really interesting and unusual. Earthy sort of, but mostly has an unusual fruit taste. A bit tangy, a bit bitter, and quite complex. — 2 months ago

Cialla Colli Orientali del Friuli Picolit 2011

Medium-gold color. Honey, almonds, ginger, and baked pear, a touch of oxidation. Sweet at first, then finishes with a slight nutty bitterness. Superb with blood orange cake and vanilla gelato. — 2 years ago

Vespa Bianco Colli Orientali del Friuli White Blend 2018

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.

Vespa Bianco Chardonnay Blend 2016

Full bodied and with the age it’s lovely. Surprised at how low this is rated. Had it with fairly strong tomato based seafood sauce on linguine. — 4 months ago

Rocca Bernarda

Novecento Venezia Giulia Bianco 2016

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.
