Country: Italy, Friuli
Tasting Notes: Brilliant straw yellow in color, with greenish reflections; intense, fruity bouquet (in youth, reminiscent of bananas and ripe apples), slightly aromatic; excellent persistence. Beautifully enhances the variety’s natural aromas.
Varietal: 100% Chardonnay
Pairing: Matches fish recipes, both classic and nouvelle cuisine, particularly with sauce, as well as shellfish and creamed vegetable soups. An especially fine accompaniment is with frogfish soup en-croûte.
