2015 Friulano, Colli Orientali del Friuli, Marco Sara, Udine

Sold Out

Where the Ribolla Gialla is delicately floral, Marco’s Friulano is fuller and lime-fruitier. Friulano loves the Colli Orientali but struggles on the plain (where Pinot Grigio is at home, by the way). There’s also a distinct note of wild thyme, of fragrance, along with the fleshy Friulano fruit. Twenty percent is aged in Stockinger botte. This is a sumptuous joy to behold, from the warm 2015 vintage. Drink 2016-2024.
