Country: Italy, Friuli
Tasting Notes: A tightly wound balance of minerality and citrus, evolving over time into a more viscous expression of wildflowers, clover honey and mature pear. The palate sensations are more like those of a red wine. Its tannic structure and acidic backbone lend it no only immediate impact but also a long life. Vespa Bianco can be further aged up to 7-10 years after the vintage.
Varietal: Blend of 45% Chardonnay, 45% Sauvignon, 10% Picolit
Pairing: Roasted turkey, duck and pork. Shellfish, especially lobster and scallops. Mushroom based dishes, like mushroom risotto. Elegant cheese-dressed pastas.
