Bright straw yellow, shading into pale gold. The characterful nose reveals subtle hints of toastiness and vanilla with distinct hints of citrus fruit. An impressive palate with well-extracted fruit, thanks in part to the late harvest. The complex, well-sustained palate is seamless from entry through to the leisurely finish. L&S (Apr 2020)

*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

Like an amplified, oaky version of the 2018 Vigne Bianco. Quite a firm sweet oak nose, but the white fruit comes through. On the palate the nervy acidity cuts through the oak. I expect quite a few people will like this wine, but the oak overshadows the fruit on the finish. Drinking range: 2020 - 2023 Rating: 16 Walter Speller, www.jancisrobinson.com(Apr 2020)

Zuani

Just over 12 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 CLASSIC ITALIAN case

Oenotria the Greeks called Italy - the 'land of vines' - and they'd know as they took the first vines to the peninsular, where they thrive to this day in every region of the country.
