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 »

  • 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

    Wine review by hransom


  • Masi Masianco Venezie 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Masi offered a bottle of balsamic vinegar with this wine so my companion had to have it (or its fratello Campofiorin). The wine is, however, quite refreshing with citrus (Verduzzo component) and forward white fruit (Pinot Grigio component) on the palate. Soft, gentle - this wine is a perfect aperitif. Decent Italian white for a decent price. 86 ... Read More
