Lorenzon Borgo dei Vassalli, Friulano, Friuli-Venezia Giulia DOC, Italy, 2013, C$15.40 at Marquis

friuliMade from the Friulano grape (aka Sauvignonasse) this wine is a characterful white from Fruili-Venezia Giulia in Italy’s northeastern corner and up against the border with Slovenia.

Pale lemon yellow, it has a beautiful fragrance of sweet, white flowers, lemon balm and distinct almond.

The palate is dry with refreshing medium plus acidity and seriously floral tones showing more white blossom, honeysuckle, almond paste, lemon and white peach.

Delicious and different with strong minerality, this is not one of those innocuous Italian white wines.  Ditch the Pinot Grigio and enjoy some of this WSET Good plus wine.
