Kicking off the 22nd Virtual Wine Tasting was this Friulano. Gold in color it had a beautiful look in the glass. We tasted it at room temp and chilled. Here are the notes I cobbled from all the input.
Room Temp- Nice nose of green pear, lime, florals, green apple, grapefruit and peach. On the palate the group got peach, florals, green apple but no varietal bitter almond. I was disappointed about that. Light to medium bodied, this relatively low acid wine had a short finish, getting 90 points from me.
The chilled version had florals including honeysuckle, some vanilla, almond and a salinity like sea air. No one got grapefruit on this nose. The palate did however get grapefruit from someone in the group. Green apple, almonds, tart fruit and a saline minerality showed. I thought the chilled version was better and gave it 91 points. For $24 this is a good intro to the varietal. 4 stars from me! Salut….
