Lemon and green apple on the nose
Light bodied on the palate
Tart, crisp finish of minerals, almond notes, and citrus
Here's an excellent food wine for $13. It's not too sweet and not too tart, with a good backbone and a food-friendly flavor profile.
Friulano was formerly known and labeled as Tocai Friulano until the 2007 vintage. It's a white wine varietal grown almost exclusively in a small region of Northern Italy where the grape excells. This bottling is from a producer known for the marriage of food and wine in the United States. Joe Bastianich, along with his mother Lidia, has long been a fixture in the New York food and wine scene. He is also making wines in Italy, to which I raise a glass!
