BIBENDA: Friuli, great winemakers meet

Dal n.165 di BIBENDA




“… Modern viticulture continues to enhance the thousand-year-old wine route of this hilly area, which is a great nature itinerary, close to the snows of Carinthia as well as to the sea, a route that speaks of wine, punctuated along the way by the signs of well-known wineries such as Venica, Livio Felluga, Livon and Jermann.”

“… the Via dei Sapori Friuli Venezia Giulia, under the leadership of Walter Filipputti, in collaboration with Jermann, organised a Lunch Show on 24 October, with 20 chefs. Seasonal cuisine that of the Friuli Venezia Giulia Via dei Sapori restaurants, prepared with local products that the chefs help to promote. Through the dishes, in a tireless search for raw materials of the highest calibre, the chefs wish to tell the story of their land and the many historical and cultural contaminations that make it unique; all this together with the 40 winemakers, coming not only from Friuli but also from the rest of Italy and neighbouring Slovenia. On this occasion we had the opportunity to taste many great white wines and fine reds with a typical Friulian character, from the indigenous Friulano and Ribolla Gialla to Sauvignon and Chardonnay. The most widespread red grape variety is Merlot and among the local varieties are Refosco dal Penduncolo Rosso, Schioppettino and Pignolo.”

“… Another level-headed tasting was the 2014 Sauvignon Ronco delle Mele from Venica, a family-run estate in Dolegna del Collio. The property is spread over four hills, with around 35 hectares of vineyards, enhanced by a winery philosophy capable, in each wine, of emphasising its particularities and uniqueness. The 2014 Ronco delle Mele is one of the best Sauvignon wines in Italy: a citrusy nose of grapefruit, then intense lychee, and traversed by a pleasant floral and herbal note (sage and thyme), against a mineral background. In the mouth it is savoury, mineral, with good freshness and consistent aromatic returns.”
