The reporting from Friuli by the COF2011 group is getting better and better. A group of wine writers is on the ground and visiting some of the most exciting properties in Friuli, all led by the intrepid and informed Jeremy Parzen. If you have not be following along, Jeremy Parzen, David McDuff, Samantha Dugan, Wayne Young, Alfonso Cevola, and Nicolas Contenta are blogging daily about their visits and experiences and it's a fascinating look at Colli Orientali del Friuli, a relatively undiscovered region.
Having so many different viewpoints, presenting the bloggers' own unique glimpes of their shared events is simply fascinating. This is a ground-breaking project and a style we will be seeing more of. If you want to see part of the future of wine journalism, this is it -- so don't miss it! Today, our friend David McDuff leads us through the group's visit to I Clivi. Taken by itself this is a great report, as part of the whole, it's even better.
