I have always been very fascinated by the evolution of white wines and this bottle showed me the age ability of Friuli white grapes like Ribolla Gialla. This wine is ready since the first sip and the nose is warm and complex with spices and yellow flowers. The palate is creamy and crisp at the same time.
