Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon, Riesling Italico - Friuli-Venezia Giulia - Friuli-Venezia Giulia
When I opened it, what immediately captured me the most was its appearance: one of the strangest color I’ve ever seen for a macerated wine. It was almost red! Yes, it was surely pretty old and maybe this can in some ways explain it, buy I think it went into some reduction as well. Anyway, like in most of natural wines, every sip was different. At the beginning, I was thinking something went wrong. But then, all the flavors came up from the glass and inebriated me with dried fruits, saffron and all sorts of herbs’ notes. And those tannins: WOW! I usually love all Gravner’s tannins: light but at the same time able to make their way through the scents, nicely invading my palate. Absolutely loved it!
Rare stuff Intense, complex, developed, herbal, fruity and spicy nose. Marinated pear, apricot, anise, cinnamon, orange, honey, almond, clove, caramel and nuts Intense, dry palate with rounded tannins, medium acidity, mushrooms and iron in aftertaste
Amazing balance and long lasting full body taste with taste of plum.
