Friulano

resilient by nature

#grace #finesse #lightness #tradition
Full-bodied, multi-faceted wine, with floral notes that confer a graceful yet complex allure. Light, perky, never banal, with a potent yet fresh mouthfeel; a wine to caress the palate, with the wonderfully subtle bitter almond finish tempered by a mildly sweet note. Perfectly balanced as tradition commands, yet with a distinct finesse and elegance.
