2013 Blason Isonzo Bianco (3L Bag-in-aBox) (cannot ship)

SKU #1038182

This three-liter box is 100% Friulano (though, it cannot be labeled as such because the DOC's laws do not recognize box wine, as of yet). I think there is no tastier, more versatile white wine in our store right now that beats this Bianco for value and pure drinkability. It combines the body, weight and richness of what California Chardonnay feels like with the minerality and freshness of Pinot Grigio tastes like that just makes it into the perfect cocktail white. It is ideal for keeping in the fridge (I've tasted them after they've been open for 6 months and they're still rockin) for the occasional glass of white, flash deglazing a pan or the occasional, impromtu party!

A K&L direct-import, Blason's Isonzo Bianco (3L Bag-in-aBox!) maintains a permanent residency in my fridge whenever it is available, and has done since it first hit our shelves in 2008. Crisp, fruity, and refreshing, the latest release is great. It's the perfect quaffer to enjoy while cooking, as an aperitif, and it's vacuum-sealed packaging makes it great for all kinds of outdoor activities, from camping to picnics to boating. Cheers!

Last year this was $19.99! Back by popular demand. I think there is no tastier, more versatile white wine in our store right now. This is three liters (that’s like four bottles), and there is nothing that beats this Pinot Bianco for value and pure drinkability. It combines the body and weight of Chardonnay (to which it is distantly related) and the minerality and freshness of Pinot Grigio. The perfect cocktail white. We sold out of this quickly last summer, so buy a couple of these. This is a great wine to serve at your Labor Day party, for camping, or just for the last warm days of an Indian summer. Sadly, we cannot ship this wine.

The bag-in-a-box has risen again! Cast your shame aside, and just enjoy the wine. Having a fresh and friendly Italian white in your fridge for the summer is pure joy. And having 3 liters of it in an air-tight container is even better. Many of us at K&L are huge fans of the Blason wines - and I am so excited to have this format back in stock.

OK, so this wine doesn't need a third review, but I can't help it! This box is pure genius because it is GOOD! If you are in my situation, which I am sure many out there are, one bottle a night is not enough and two is too many! I like a glass of white right when I get home, and then a nice bottle to pair up with my food. That means I have to open two bottles, or save some from a previous night. With this bag in a box, the wine lasts for weeks, if not months! I can come home and get my glass while I cook, then find the right bottle for dinner. I am sooooooo psyched about this. UPDATE: 6/10/09 THE BOX IS BACK!! SOOOO HAPPY!! SUMMER CAN BEGIN!

While visiting Giovanni Blason in February we spied some odd boxes stacked in a corner. I asked Giovanni, “What the hell are these?” He responded, “You won’t want any of those; you Americans like bottles.” I responded, “On the contrary we Americans like bargains, how much is that 3-liter box.” An answer, some brief calculations on my part and I said, “Okay, we’ll take 'em"! $19.99 for 3 liters (that's four 750ml bottles). The winery can’t label it Pinot Bianco due to existing DOC regulations, but it is 100% Pinot Bianco. Crisp, clean, refreshing with a elegant fruitiness, touch of tarragon and a hint of mineral. If you don't want to do the math that’s $5 a bottle! Giovanni tells me it lasts for more than 3 months in the refrigerator, I told him that couldn’t happen in mine!
Drink from 2008 to 2009

Hollywood K&L staff member Chris recommended this to me (thank you!). This is an outstanding value for an everyday "light & bright" white. In theory it'll last for weeks in the fridge (my box was a household hit and didn't make it nearly so long). So cast away any pretentious prejudgments and give it a try, you could easily spend as much on a single bottle that isn't this tasty!

Actually not related to Chardonnay, according to Jancis Robinson _Oxford Companion to Wine_. Although that's a common misconception, it's actually a mutation of Pinot Gris.

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
