Winemaker's Notes

Intense straw-yellow with green-gold tinges. Subtle and delicate, this Friulano is enriched with balsamic notes and wildflowers, which make for a complex bouquet. Fresh-tasting, piquant and dynamic, it is well balanced.

Excellent as an aperitif or table wine. More traditional pairings include with soups and seafood pasta dishes, also good match for Asian cuisines.
