92 points James Suckling: "Very attractive melon and nectarine aromas. The palate is ripe and generous, but with lively acidity that keeps it straight and clean. Quite a rich finish. Drink now. " (08/2018)

Dario Ermacora was one of our first Italian direct imports. His wines have always been textbook, classic, and archetypal for Friulian whites: understated, balanced, with a long finish. His winery is in the Colli Orientali del Friuli, or the Eastern Hills of Friuli, a few scant kilometers from the Slovenian border. Most of Friuli is a flat, glaciated plain running from the Julian Alps down to the top of the Adriatic Sea, but on the eastern border the topography changes. In the Colli Orientali a series of horseshoe-shaped glacial moraines dot the landscape...

This wine is a sterling showcase of what the red Bordeaux varietals can achieve in the moderate climate of northern Italy. 'Bruma' is the Friulian dialect term for the morning fog that blankets the Valle de Isonzo. Made from 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot grown in pebbly limestone soils high in iron oxide, the Bruma Rosso is aged 18 months in small barriques. Showing red fruit character along characteristic savory notes of leather and espresso bean, it's an outsider's take on classic varietals and a noteworthy food-pairing wine.

Importer notes: "Situated just a stone’s throw away from the Slovenian border, Edi Keber’s 10 hectares of vineyards grow on the classic "ponca" soil, a stony, friable marl that gives the wines remarkable weight and body. Extremely poor, the "ponca" naturally stresses the vines which produce very small quantities of grapes (1 to 1.5 kg/vine) and provide a distinctive minerality, typical of the Collio region. Keber's first bottled wines date back to 1957, although his family, originally from Vienna, has made wine for 350 years. Edi deeply believes in the u...

Importer's notes: "The Pierpaolo Pecorari Estate is located in Eastern Friuli near the former republic of Yugoslavia. The estate is known for its elegant white wines with great varietal character. Pierpaolo cultivates his grapes according to local tradition with a minimum of chemical intervention before they are cold-fermented in stainless steel tanks. Due to the low production of wine from this small estate (5,000 cases per year), special attention is given to producing a superior quality in each bottle released."

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Enticing scents of field flower, white stone fruit, citrus zest and a whiff of tomato leaf leap from the glass. A blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignon, Pinot Grigio and Friulano, the savory succulent palate delivers apple, juicy pink grapefruit, white peach and a hint of mineral. Tangy acidity keeps it light on its feet while an almond note wraps up the finish. *Editors’ Choice* (KO) " (07/2018)

"I am fascinated by Italian sparkling wines made of indigenous Italian varieties," writes importer Oliver McCrum, "and the Zanussis make a really good one. It's not made by either of the normal methods used to make dry sparkling wine, but rather by the method used to make Moscato d'Asti, which involves putting must into the special fermentation tank, and fermenting all the way from grape-juice to sparkling wine in one step. The wine is then aged in the tank on the lees until judged to be done, then decanted off the lees and bottled. (Some top-end Prosecc...

Monica Larner writes in the Wine Advocate: "Dario Raccaro is a boutique producer with a pure and genuine winemaking approach. He prefers stainless steel and cold stabilization for the whites. He has five hectares of vine, including the Vigna del Rolat that is often a source of Friulano rootstock. The quality of the fruit from this vineyard is immediately recognizable."

From the Collio DOC on Italy's border with Slovenia, Venica is one of the region's most well-known and respected estates. Jesera actually means "little lake" in Slovenian, named for the vineyard's situation at the bottom of a cool valley which renders a textured and full-bodied Pinot Grigio. At the time of release, there are no professional reviews for the 2018 bottling, but the 2017 garnered 93 points from James Suckling.

92 points James Suckling: "Intense lemon blossom on the nose. Quite concentrated yet sleek on the palate with a crisp finish." (11/2018)

Monica Larner writes: "In family hands for five generations, Primosic is one of the most prolific and interesting wineries in the Oslavia area of the Collio wine region. Silvestro and Marko Primosic produce a base line of wines under the "Classici" header, a line of wines from indigenous grapes, a Collio cru selection of wines, a collection of Riservas and sparkling wines."

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2007 Miani Colli Orientali del Friuli Rosso (92RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Rosso Miani is a hugely delicious red that will satisfy readers’ cravings while some of Pontoni’s more important reds age in the cellar. Vintage 2007 was not kind to Pontoni. There are no high-end reds here in 2007, just the Rosso, which is made from the best Merlot and Refosco Pontoni was able to salvage. It shows beautiful raspberry fruit, leather and spices, with soft tannins, no hard edges and fabulous balance in a small-scaled style consistent with a less prestigious year. (AG)" (02/2011)
