Region: Friuli Venezia Giulia
Producer: Colmello Di Grotta
There are only 500 cases made annually of this smooth Friulano that comes from the Collio area of Friuli. This area in the northeast corner of Italy has gravelly lime soils which help explain the essential minerality of this floral white wine. Harvested the last couple of weeks in September, this wine has moderate acidity with just the right sweetness that is characteristic of the Friulano grape. The Friulani particularly enjoy pairing this wine with frittata of any type as well as drinking it with shellfish such as prawns and shrimp.
