2011 Blason Friulano Isonzo (Previously 11)

SKU #1091591

Friulano is a classic, this is the Friulian national drink: fresh, crisp with wonderful balance. The locals drink this with, well, they just drink it all the time. On the way to work, morning break, on the way home to lunch, you get the picture. It goes on all day. The Blason Friulano is rich, complex, spicy with hints of tarragon, and mineral with body and balance. A really extraordinary balance of fruit, spice and drinkability. Perfect for your favorite fish dish. I find that 2011 is a sensational vintage for Friulian whites! Greg St.Clair K&L's Italian Buyer

The 2011 Blason Friulano has classic, snappy herbal aromas that are almost Sauvignon-like. Soft and creamy on the palate, with a full, rich mouthfeel balanced by soft acidity. What a wine for the price!

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.
