Great Italian White Wine From Friuli

Catégories: Food and Wines Articles - Monday, 29 Juin 2015


Is Italian white wine getting better all the time, or am I just noticing more and more of it? Perhaps both.

My latest discovery: the Molamatta Collio Bianco 2012 from Marco Felluga ($23).

The DOC Collio is located in Italy’s extreme north east, along it’s boarder with Slovenia. Collio means hill in Italian, and the name is apt – the region is marked by steep rolling hills that have long yielded Italy’s finest whites: clean and pure, with a laser-like precision.

Felluga’s version is all this and more. Filled with the flavors of fresh white peaches, an intense granite-like minerality, and a refreshing grapefruit acidity.

There’s not a discordant note.
