2015 Bianco "Fiore di Campo" (Lis Neris)

Lis Neris, Bianco "Fiore di Campo", Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Italy 2015

85% Friulano, 10% Sauvignon Blanc, 5% Riesling


From the small Italian village of San Lorenzo, within walking distance of Slovenia, comes this spectacularly flavorful white from Alvaro Pecorari, the fourth generation winegrower at Lis Neris. Grown in deep gravely soil, the vines yield grapes with intense mineral character that isn't overshadowed by the aromatic power of gorgeous ripeness. Friulano is the focus with a small addition of Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling to increase brightness and add depth. It's a bold, rich, exotic white with vibrant acidity.

Serving Suggestions: Calamari w/ beans & basil. Sausage-stuffed quail w/ white wine gravy & seedless grapes.
