2011 Ermacora Friulano Colli Orientali del Friuli

SKU #1109568

The wines of Ermacora are absolute steals for their price to quality ratios, which is why we continue to bring them in direct, vintage after vintage. Their Friulano exibits all the classic spicy/sweet herbaciousness of the grape with honeydew melon and assorted tree fruits on the nose. The 2011 shows a nice balance of richness and flavor on the palate, with crisp acidity and an intense mineral vein adding focus and drive to the finish. As with the Pinot Bianco, this will evolve beautifully over the course of a few years in bottle, but patience is not necessary to begin enjoying this wine as it is fresh, delicious and ready to drink now.

Now that this has been around for a few months this wine has finally come together, as it always does. Subtle fruit backed by a savory note, a vein of minerality and fresh acidity. Think Poultry or pork for dinner.

One of Italy's favorite producers! The Ermacora Friulano shows aromas ranging from green apple and pear to more rounded apricot, peach, or even tropical fruit. But, its the mineral and crisp acidity that keeps me coming back for more! Perfect for a summer shrimp salad.

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.
