2008 Ermacora Friulano (Previously $14.99)

SKU #1052970

This Tocai is always a staff favorite, as well as our customers' (it always seems to be the first of the Ermacoras to sell out). This year is no exception, the palate carries an enticing nuance of wildflowers and pears, and it is broadly flavored and offers notes of herbs and citrus, apricots and a flowery finesse with layers of minerals. Very nicely balanced acidity heightens the flavors and gives it a long, clean finish. This wine has definite structure that will work with the il secondo or second course, which is the main course, often meat, poultry, game or fish. (Mike "Guido" Parres)

The '08 Friulano is classic! It's medium bodied, with a savory core of acidity and minerality that is the perfect frame for the wine's soft orchard fruits, citrus and almost herbal spice.

It's a beauty. One of my summer house whites. Great introduction to Tocai Friulano...oops, now just Friulano. This has that steel/acid/minerals gestalt that the US winemakers find it so hard to duplicate.

Italy

- 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.
