Petrussa 2003 Sauvignon (Colli Orientali del Friuli)

Sulfuric and reductive to start, with heavy aromas of match stick, barnyard and algae. But if you haven't tossed it aside after the first sniff or two, there's a lot below the surface. For starters, the richness and pungency of the melon and peach flavors is something. So is the briny character of the palate. But let it be noted: one of our panelists simply did not like this wine, proclaiming it “oily and dominated by salinity.” Imported by Winesource USA.
