History has a way of shaping and sharpening wine regions into distinctive enclaves, and the Friuli region north of Venezia has undergone more than its share of conquest and conflict. Often invaded because of its unique proximity to the East, Friuli has indomitably survived and today is a treasured region for incredible Italian whites, the most famous being those made from the native Friulano grape. We're fortunate to carry one of the finest, made by Dario and Luciano Ermacora, a richly aromatic flowerbox of a wine, noted for its persuasive nose of almonds, apples and yeasty bread. Absolutely without oak, for why would anyone play with perfection? Drink this luminous, full-flavored beauty with tarragon-roasted chicken or pork medallions for a sumptuous feast.
