ZUANI DOC COLLIO BIANCO RISERVA 2011

Wine Region: Collio, Italy

Grape: Friulano, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio

Tasting Notes

A white wine obtained from a blend of native Friulano grapes and international varieties that thrive in Friuli, especially in Collio, with its outstandingly favourable geology, soil types and site climates. Bright straw yellow, shading into pale gold. The characterful nose reveals subtle hints of toastiness and vanilla, leading into an impressive palate with well-extracted fruit, thanks in part to the late harvest. There are distinct hints of citrus fruit on both nose and palate. The complex, well-sustained palate is seamless from entry through to the leisurely finish.
