This complex Friulian white combines four grape varieties to create a silky, vivid and gorgeously aromatic blend.
What You Need To Know
Tucked into Italy’s northeast corner, next to Austria and Slovenia, the tiny Friuli region is a treasure trove of minerally white wines. Its signature variety is Friulano, a grape that’s related to Sauvignon Blanc and produces tangy, dry whites with herb and pear notes. In this Friulano-based blend from the acclaimed Ronca del Gelso estate, owner-winemaker Giorgio Badin adds body to the wine with the addition of Pinot Blanc and boosts its aromas with dashes of two ultra-fragrant grapes, Riesling and Gewürtztraminer (known locally as Traminer Aromatico). Badin’s family farmed livestock for four generations before he converted their farm to grapes in the 1980s. It was a good move: Badin’s wines compete with the region’s best.
