This is an interesting, new selection from winemakers Marco and Massimo Zorzettig of La Tunella in Friuli, made from wheat and barley grown on their farmlands and water from the well of Monte Mia. A rich gold color, this leads with scents of fresh wheat, underripe banana, tart orange and subtle sweet spice. Those notes carry through to the medium-weight mouth, with high carbonation that lifts the slightly slick texture. Hints of green peppercorn and lemongrass unfold on the finish. Alturis, USA.
