Made from native grape Friulano and fermented in large casks, this full-bodied, sophisticated wine opens with delicate aromas that recall lemon blossom, acacia and walnut. The linear palate offers Bartlett pear, lemon zest and golden apple accented with notes of bitter almond. This will develop complexity over the next few years. Drink through 2018.
