Reviews for this vintage: 2013
Terlato's new project in Friuli is a partnership with Marco Simonit and Pieropaolo Sirch, locals who consult on pruning for Chateau Latour and Champagne Roederer, among others. Closer to home, their focus is on pinot grigio, as well as this lovely friulano from the Sirch family vineyards. It's smooth and silky, with a light savory character that keeps its peach and kumquat flavors cool and poised.
Smooth and creamy with lush tropical fruit and juicy acidity; ripe, aromatic and rich with balance and length.
