2018 Friulano, Visintini, Friuli Colli Orientali, Italy
£14.50 £11.95 per bottle
The Friulano grape is a relation of Sauvignon Blanc and it is also called both Sauvignonasse and Sauvignon Vert. A muscular white grape with almost tannic, skinsy grip on the finish, this is a main course white which with amazing accuracy and depth of fruit. It has a floral, citrus and white pepper nose, but it is the palate which astounds the senses. Drink it with particularly creamy or spicy dishes and it performs where others would shrink away, mewling back to the wine rack. You must taste this uniquely beguiling style of dry white wine.
