2014 Collio Azienda Agricola Visintini
|Origin||Italy, Friuli Venezia Giulia|
As featured on C4 Sunday Brunch!
Despite the long cool and relatively damp growing season Oliviero has pulled this off with remarkable aplomb. Now fully Bio-Dynamic the purity of the fruit and the natural reflection of a cool vintage are clear. Although restrained, this has good crunchy pineapple-cube fruit, well defined layers of citric bounce and pretty blossom. A really enticing treat and something all drinkers of Sauvignon Blanc really should try. L&S (Aug 2015)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Another pristine white from the excellent Visintini in northeastern Italy, this time using the local Ribolla Gialla and offering deliciously fresh and inviting orchard fruit, a soft plumpness of texture and a streak of racy fresh acidity. Serve with creamy seafood pasta or risotto. Rating: 90 www.thewinegang.com (Mar 2017)
Azienda Agricola Visintini
Founded in 1973 by Andrea Visintini, this twenty-four hectare estate has vineyards in Collio, Collio Orientali and Grave del Friuli, and is now controlled by the new generation of Oliviero and his twin sisters Cinzia and Palmira. The wines are beautifully made, each with wonderful expression of both the grape and the 'terroir'. Vineyard practices are now entirely biodynamic, and certified this year. These wines are also extraordinarily good value in what is generally a highly priced region. With the 2014 vintage the family have unveiled the brilliant new labels for each of the wines - with the beautiful botanical drawings of flavours or fruits that relate to the flavour profiles in each different varietal. The wines are great too - in a far from straightforward vintage - beautiful fruit definition and lovely bright minerality.
