  • Canaletto Pinot Grigio Venezie


    It was ok at first, but slightly bitter like many inexpensive Italian whites. Slightly disappointed but drinkable if you don't pay too much for it. Drink very chilled. Read More

  • La Viarte Friulano Colli Orientali del Friuli 2012


    Really nice Italian Friulano. This was full of light lemon pith, a touch of creaminess along with the moderate acidity. Fairly smooth, well balanced and refreshing. Read More

  • Marco Felluga Collio Friulano 2012


    Fairly nice Italian DOC Friulano. There's a touch of mustiness on the nose but the palate has some interesting wet stone, spice and overripe lemon. Nice acidity and a fairly long minerally finish. Read More

  • Castello di Gabbiano Pinot Grigio Venezie IGT 2011


    Light and airy. I almost get a hint of coconut with the citrus and green apple notes. A refreshing warm-weather wine, pares well with spicy food. Read More

  • Traminer Sant'Elena Venezia Giulia IGT 2009


    Really interest Italian white made from the traminer grape. Floral nose and palate with really crisp acidity, honeysuckle and flint with a really nice finish. Kind of reminds me of a good chablis with a few rose petals thrown in. Read More
