Colli Orientali Del Friuli, Udine


Friuli Colli Orientali Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Another Geeky Sauvignon Blanc from a region known more for another white varietal (in this case, Friulano). Ripe, crunchy, and with notable fresh herb aromas. Spot on! — 11 days ago

Enzo Pontoni made something really solid here - blind you think this is a great Burgundy white. Not many Italian whites can touch the level which Miani delivers !

Friuli Colli Orientali Ribolla Nera 2014

Hmm. Kinda like a mencia? After little CO2 blows off a rush of strawberry, raspberry, etc and mineral savor. Medium weight, relatively high acid, I get why this is a standard bearing estate in the region — 12 days ago


Colli Orientali del Friuli Rosso Merlot Blend 2011

Jörgen Lindström Carlvik

Super charged and deep with abundant dark fruit, coffee and dark chocolate notes. Wild flavours here, which are untamed at present, so hands off please for another few years. Great, layered and persistent finish. — a month ago

Colli Orientali del Friuli Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso 2013

Let this one air out for a while- I was drinking mine on day 3 and it was great. Dark plum, medium + staining, medium+ viscosity on the eye. Nose sees stewed, ripe black cherries, balsamic, maybe some tobacco. Palette sees sweet cherries, medium+ acid, good deal of tannins. This wine has some heft- both in terms of mouthfeel and tannins. The finish is medium+ with medium complexity. I really enjoyed this wine- reminded me of a mix between Docetto and Chianti- interesting enough to drink solo and the extra heft is welcome. — 2 months ago

Colli Orientali del Friuli Malvasia 2015

The ridiculously low yields is giving a fruit concentration that would carry mountains, deep as the sea with new nuances throughout and a revitalizing and supporting minerality. A flavor intensity that shuts your mouth with an electric sensation on the mid palate and an everlasting finish. A complete wine!

Ronchi di Cialla

Colli Orientali del Friuli Schioppettino di Cialla 2012

Asta is a trendy neighborhood restaurant in Boston's Back Bay. The menu is simple insofar as you choose from five or eight courses. We opted for five. The first course was a warming cheddar and beer soup. A ginger squid and foam dish was unusual and tasty in equal measure. Then came a sweet potato with an apple cider vinegar sauce. The apex was slow cooked beef that looked like it had been done sous-vide. Something called Interstellar was a bonus course - a parsnip purée with cocoa and popping rocks - a dish for the New Year. The treacle pudding was rich, comforting and delicious.
We opted against the wine pairings, instead ordering this Schioppettino from Friuli. Apparently this winery rescued the varietal and champions it. Not sure if this is true... it is light bodied but has earthy characteristics. Like a cross between Gamay and Syrah. Quite tasty and high acidity, which helped when pairing with a curious selection of dishes.
