2020 Martissima Collio Bianco Friuli 750 ml

Availability: In stock (1)

Marta Venica literally grew up alongside the vines of her family’s winery, Venica & Venica. For all intents and purposes, the Venicas are the first family of Friuil, having been making wine in the cool hills of the Collio since the 1920s. The Bianco is a co-fermentation of the three white grapes she grows - Malvasia, Ribolla Gialla, and Friulano, all of which are picked and pressed together, then fermented two-thirds in stainless steel and one-third in barrique. Whites from Collio are rich, but balanced, refined, but approachable. A "winter white", with bitter orange, fleshy yellow apple and a touch of honey and almond, the 2019 vintage received 89 points from Vinous Media: "The 2019 Bianco is delicate in the glass with pretty white flowers and sweet spice. This is silky-smooth with a nice mineral twang that gives way to notes of ripe melon and hints of cardamon. It leaves the mouth watering for more, with pretty inner florals that linger long. The 2019 Bianco is very pleasant yet fruit-forward, with about 2.4 grams of residual sugar that mixes perfectly well with the wine's zesty acidity." (Apr 2022)
