Beautifully balanced, this rich and complex white has a honeyed overtone playing off the mouthwatering acidity. Layers flavors of poached apricot, melon, kumquat and beeswax with a smoky mineral undertow and accents of chamomile, almond paste and dried marjoram. Very expressive. Friulano. Drink now through 2024. 400 cases made.-AN

A pure expression of Friulano, the 2009 Plus (now labeled as an IGT wine) occupies its own category on the continuum between sweet and dry. Approximately 10% of the grapes from the hilltop (70-year-old) Buttrio-Premariacco vineyards are air-dried for one month and some have been affected by botrytis. This accounts for the wine’s deeply golden color, its luscious creamy density and those sweet endnotes of dried apricot and candied almond. This wine is built to last and will surely gain in complexity as it evolves in the cellar. This is a spectacular effort and a very rare wine on the spectrum of Friuli whites. Drink: 2014-2022.
