Mazzolada

La Cantina del Falco Traminer Aromatico

Mmmmmmmm. What Sauvignon blanc wishes it tasted like. Flower, green grape, green apple, stone fruit, but all muted and well integrated. Nothing overpowering. Beautiful balance. — 2 days ago

Ruffino

Il Ducale Pinot Grigio 2018

Fragrant floral and bread nose. Pineapple and stone on the palate. Hint of effervescence. — a day ago

Edi Kante

Venezia Giulia Malvasia 2013

From the jump, this has an affability about it that draws you in. Lifted fruit, lemon, lanolin...so light on its feet and yet so satisfying. Refreshing and crushable. — 11 days ago

Bianco Venezia Giulia IGT Malvasia Istriana 2013

An experience. Rounded oxidative nose, some copper, dried apricots, honey, botrytis, passito-like elements. On the palate it’s viscous, bone dry, mild acidity and a touch of angostura bitters — 6 days ago

Di Lenardo Vineyards

Just Me Friuli Merlot 2011

Ronchi di Cialla

Colli Orientali del Friuli Schioppettino di Cialla 2009

Velvet, crushed rose petals, blackberries, pine with frost upon it. What a rockstar bouquet.

Wow. Right up my alley. Well balanced. Fruit forward, sure, but the emphasis here is that undercurrent spice kick of star anise, black peppercorn, and nutmeg. All the right feels here. A brush of acidity, and just the right dryness to make you lick your lips.

Dosaggio Zero Spumante Pinot Nero

Mastery Champagne style blend of Chardonnay and Malvasia - buy with frequency.

Spiced rye bread and lemon zest. Teeny bubbles with high pitched lemon, jasmine, yellow apple.

Bone dry racing acid and zippy. Also rich and round in the epilogue.

Lis Neris

Gris Friuli Isonzo Pinot Grigio 2017

Wonderful 2017 Lis Neris Gris on the water in Florida with the very traditional Thanksgiving meal of grilled shrimp and scallops! Lovely straw color in the sun. Rich lemon and citrus on the nose. And similarly surprisingly complex in the mouth with lasting finish. And all this even though we had to drink it in plastic wine glasses because we are in an AirBnB! Happy Thanksgiving! — 4 days ago

La Roncaia

Ramandolo 2011

Beautiful amber color. Straight out of Jurassic Park.

Candied ginger, citrus, roasted almonds, and mango chutney.

Oh man. This is a flavor bomb. Bursting of apricot and tropicana. Guava. That is the primary note. Feels like I’m eating a Romeo & Juliet at a Cuban hole in the wall in Miami.

That’s all I can taste now. Wonderful, goodbye.

Looks like aged Sauternes.

Cru Pignol Venezia Giulia IGT Pignolo 2004

Quite on the tertiary side. A complex and elegant wine. Austere on the finish. Nice acidity and fine tannins. Nouances of black pepper, tart, liquorice over a balsamic tone all way round. — 6 hours ago
