Favorite white wine for spring
I love the white wines from Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Italy, in the spring, especially Ribolla Gialla and Friulano. The later has fruity and floral characteristics with lively acidity and noted minerality. They are fresh, clean, delicate, smooth, perfumed with aromas of peaches, pears, apples, honeydew, and hints of almonds (which is a quite lovely quality). These wines are crisp, clean, light and lively.
These are light and fresh wines and go well with light appetizers, soups, and pasta dishes. They are also quite delicious with prosciutto! You can find good examples fromLivio Felluga throughout the states.
