    A very good Friulano,one of the best so far, it taste like a top Hungarian Tocaj with more of a long fruity finish. Needs to be served at the righ temperature or loses its personality, overall totally satified Read More

In bocca è veramente tanto, corposo, piú fresco che sapido, una bella morbidezza ma di legno non se ne parla nemmeno solo acciaio. Citrino e floreale in bocca, chiude con le tipica mandor...
