2015 Vigne Bianco Collio
|Grapes||Chardonnay, Friulano, Pinot Grigio, Sauv|
|Origin||Italy, Friuli Venezia Giulia|
This will always be the same field-blend of Sauvignon, Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay and Friulano. Pale in colour with brilliantly bright flavours of white blossomy flowers and crisp white fruit. What really makes it stand out is the incredible texture and deep vein of minerality that encapsulates the very best of Collio, and as such is one of Italy's great white wines. Lovely nose of white flowers, spice, melon, citrus and touch of honey. Palate is fleshy, bright and filled with spicy, citrus, melon, peach and floral notes, delicious. Good acidity, fulsome and immediate. L&S (Apr 2016)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
10 years ago Patrizia Felluga left the family business in order to buy her own property in the heart of the Collio and set about her ambition of making a 'terroir' based wine. Working now with her two children she is creating beautiful, crystaline wines with great character. Her seven hectares are planted with fifteen to thirty year old Friulano, Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay and Sauvignon vines, from which she produces just two wines, each the same blend, one of which is oaked. Each variety is vinified separately in stainless steel and blended to make wines which are wonderfully expressive of the vineyard.
The hills of the north-east, wheere Italy turns into Slovenia, make beautiful, crisp white wines. This rich blend of friulano, sauvignon, pinot grigio and chardonnay tastes like a mosaic of clementine, lemon, stones and pears. Victoria Moore, The Daily Telegraph (Jun 2017)
Italy's Felluga family was lauded by Hoggart for its expertise with their local friulano grape. Patrizia Felluga - now outside the family business - uses it cannily in 2015 Zuani Vigne Bianco Collio. With suitable blending partners she has created sophisticated, cost-justified, white wine with vibrant green-apple acidity, soft quince and pear fruit and suggestions of fennel and all-spice. Brian Elliott, The Scotsman (Feb 2017)
Ahhh, we were SO happy to find this on the L&S table at our London festival this year, the all-singing, all-dancing happy marriage between Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio and er, Friulano. Only the northeastern region of Friuli could get away with such white wine front, and Zuani does it better than most. Tangy with orange, fresh with lemon and pithy with grapefruit, such freshness and fruit layers can be hard to find in white wines, but this has it all. Incredible with sashimi and sushi.

A white wine obtained from a blend of native Friulano grapes and international varieties that thrive in Friuli, especially in Collio, with its outstandingly favourable geology, soil types and site climates. The bright yellow hue introduces a soft, complex, fruit-rich nose enhanced by lingering mineral notes. The warm, broad palate echoes the nose, revealing balanced acidity and impressively rich fruit on the long finish. Winemaker's notes (Jul 2016)
