Friuli Venezia Giulia, Italy


Ribolla & Malvasia Lo Speziale Bianco 2010

Wednesday Wine Committee. 1 sparkler, 2 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert wine. All tasted blind as usual.

Not a single person called this Italian. In fact, most called this either Alsatian Riesling (what I thought), Alsatian Pinot Gris it even Bordeaux Blanc. This was a dead ringer for Riesling from Alsace...petrol on the nose, tart white peach and crushed limestone on the palate. Unique.

Colli Orientali del Friuli Schioppettino di Cialla 2009

The 2009 Schioppettino from Ronchi di Cialla is simply fabulous. Pretty aromas of dried red berries, smoke, crushed stones and dried florals all come together and soar from the glass. It shows remarkable elegance and refinement, with a beautiful silky texture that frames the the seamless finish. Outstanding now. — 8 days ago

Sialis Pinot Grigio 2013

Saturated pink. Floral, some herbal and citrus notes. Interesting wine but closed now. It was more giving as temp came up a bit and it got some air but I would still wait. — 4 days ago

Collio Chardonnay

Interesting white. Drinks like a complicated, elegant red but dressed in white. Great with green seafood risotto — 18 days ago

Lithe, pretty youthful Cab. More Venezia Giulia than Cab. Which is a good thing. Would be great with Korean BBQ I think. Grazie @George Tita ! — 19 days ago

Vie di Romans

Dessimis Pinot Grigio 2016

This is a ridiculous good PG, second bottle and I’m already ordering more bottles. Tonight it was a perfect match with Burrata, tomato and lots of olive oil and basil. This wine boasts of character and has a big nose and fabulous taste. — 15 days ago

Ribolla Gialla

I love these orange wines from Gravner—always interesting and they never disappoint. Held up extremely well through the first half of an outstanding menu at Berton al Lago on Lake Como. This place deserves another star. — 25 days ago
