Little stories about the origin of 3 of Venica’s wines – Ribolla Gialla L’Adelchi, Pinot Bianco Talis and Friulano (ex Tocaj) Ronco delle Cime – told by Ornella Venica during a tasting at the HOSTERIA DI VIA STOPPANI on 26 – 28 June 2019 in Milan.
Here are the 4 Venica Wines at the Tasting – Dinner .
Pinot Bianco Talis, DOC Collio 2018. “Talis” in Friulian means “dandelion”. The tasting characteristics of this wine and its bouquet are reminiscent of field grasses and rennet apple.
Ribolla Gialla L’Adelchi, DOC Collio 2018. Gianni and Giorgio Venica dedicated this wine to their father in 2007. L’Adelchi represents the bond and the passing of the baton from one generation to the next. Its bouquet is reminiscent of wood, chestnut and acacia.
Friulano, ex Tocaj, Ronco delle Cime, DOC Collio 2018. Friulano is a wine that tells the stories of a borderland, linked to the traditions of a family and a land. ‘Ronco delle Cime’ is the area name of the vineyard and is one of the Venica family’s important labels. The Friulano has fruity notes of apple, banana, white peach and pear.
Verduzzo Toblar, IGT Venezia Giulia 2012. ‘Toblar’ is the place where the grapes are dried and gives this wine its name. Verduzzo giallo has very ancient autochthonous origins and its grape varieties are mainly found in the areas of origin. Toblar has an acacia aroma and a balanced honey flavour.
