2010 Bastianich Friulano Adriatico Colli Orientale dei Friuli 13% $15

Friulano, formerly known as Tocai Friulano is a native of the Friuli region in Northeastern Italy. Often compared to Sauvignon Blanc, to which it is related, Friulano produces richer, softer wines typically with orchard and pit fruits flavors and notable floral and herb accents.

Smokey and floral on the nose with hints of brie, dusty minerals and lots of chalk and a touch of green herb. On entry this feels just a touch loose, but it firms up nicely, wrapping a creamy gauze of pear and apricot fruit around a spice of mineral and bitter almond flavors. There's nice weight here, but it remains refreshing, with a zesty, rather long almond and mineral finish. 88 points
