Has the pale, pinkish-bronze colour of a sunset, and, as the label illustration suggests, a subtle taste of spicy ripe pears. Higher alcohol contributes to a fleshier, richer feel than in a bog-standard cheapo pinot grigio.Victoria Moore, The Daily Telegraph(Mar 2019)

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.

ROSÉ not from Provence...

Do you tire of endless bottles of super-pale Provence rosé? Do you yearn for something different? Fancy some pink of a different provenance? He be the answer - a dozen bottles of rosé from elsewhere; a bit French, a bit Italian and a slightly funky Spanish organic pink.
