A blend of 40% barrel fermented Pinot Bianco, 40% Friulano and 20%, Ribolla Gialla fermented in steel, this opens with aromas suggesting dried exotic fruit, coconut and oak-driven spice. The aromas carry over to the rather lean palate alongside a confectionery note and firm acidity. A walnut taste gives it a bitter finish.
