Friuli-Venezia Giulia is located in the northeast corner of Italy, bordering Austria and Slovenia.  The Julian Alps, named for Julius Caesar, preside over the northern landscape, while the south is comprised of villages and towns leading to the Gulf of Trieste. Being as close as it is to the country’s border, it’s historically been a veritable magnet for invasions, by everyone from Attila the Hun to Napoleon. In the 18th century, Charles of Hapsburg opened up Trieste and Fiume as “free trade” ports. But this only served to give Austria access to the Meditterranean and make these trade hubs very prosperous while the rest of the region was steeped in poverty. But after World War II, areas rich in agricultural traditions were able to benefit from the rise in modern industry and the region as a whole rose from its downtrodden past. 
 
The Alps and Adriatic sea are the region’s great climate moderators. Mountainous DOCS to the north and east benefit Read more »

  • Ecco Domani Pinot Grigio Venezia 2015

    Snoothrank:

    This is warm and fruity on the nose with stone fruit and citrus notes, apple, lemon and a light nuttiness. More fruit notes of peach, pear and green apple on the palate, this is pleasant and light and unassuming and a classic expression of Pinot Grigio. Read More

  • Bellafina Pink Moscato Venezia

    Snoothrank:

    Effervescent in the glass with rose petal and strawberry aromas. Off dry in the mouth, this would please those with a sweet tooth. This starts out with more strawberry and watermelon but there is a light tart note here that's acidic and lemony. Read More

    Wine review by martins2002


  • Surprised nobody's mentioned him so far so I'll throw Gravner into the discussion. He as much as anyone put clay pots/terracotta vessels/amphorae/qvevri/giare/whatever-you-want-to-call-them on the winemaking map, starting decades ago. He uses giare from Georgia, which he lines with beeswax. His whites from them that I've had are almost as tannic... Read More

  • Campanile Pinot Grigio Friuli Grave 2009

    Snoothrank:

    This was tart upon opening and needed a little time to settle down into the "normal" PG profile that is uniquely Campanile. By that I mean there is a saline note to the finish that stands out from the pear, melon and citrus finish. I like because it's different. Drink now - Paul (11/21/12) 87 points Read More

  • Bivio Pinot Grigio 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Full of body the winemaker says "An elegant and lively bouquet with structured notes of pear, exotic fruit and crisp acidity. Finishes with gorgeous minerality." Good for the price point. Read More
