A blend of 50% Friulano, 25% Ribolla Gialla and 25% Malvasia Istriana, this understated but compelling white offers aromas of yellow stone fruit, hazelnut, nutmeg and graphite. The elegantly structured, medium-bodied palate offers dried apricot, toasted almond and lemon zest while a flinty mineral note backs up the finish. It also boasts impressive freshness for the scorching vintage.
