2014 Raccaro "Vigna del Rolat" Friulano Collio

SKU #1291657 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Dario Raccaro is a talented producer and the author of some of Friuli Venezia Giulia's best white wines. But this vintage is a challenging one. The 2014 Collio Friulano Vigna del Rolat shows less depth and complexity compared to past vintages. You get purity of fruit here with Friulano's characteristic aromas of pear and Golden Delicious apple. The intensity is dialed down by a notch or two. This wine is round and soft in terms of texture. (ML)  (5/2016)

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.
