Schiopetto Friulano 2011

SKU 05262


A traditional wine with a strong typicality and personality. Appearance: Intense straw yellow with golden green reflections. Aroma: Discreet impact, with intense aromas of pear and apricot, just perceptible the classic almond and aroma of wildflowers that help to give complexity. Mouth Feel: The palate is sapid and dynamic with good balance resulting from the excellent fusion of freshness and salinity but also from the excellent mouth-nose correspondence.

Wine EnthusiastMade with the Friulano grape-formerly known as Tocai Friulano-this white offers lemon peel and mineral aromas that carry over to the palate. It's long and linear, with a crisp finish.
