Buy Zuani Collio Bianco Vigne
Pronounced and complex aromas of ripe fruit are integrated with mineral notes. A core of acidity keeps the soft flavors of dried apricots and ripe white peaches in balance on the medium-length, pleasant finish.
Wine Advocate 87 points - A blend of Friulano, Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio (in stainless steel), the 2012 Collio Bianco Vigne opens to a very perfumed bouquet with plenty of exotic fruit, white peach, fragrant melon and orange blossom. It sports a light frame with medium fleshiness and a bright point of acidity on the close. Drink: 2014-2015. 87+ Points (Dec 2013)

Wine maker notes
A white wine obtained from a blend of native Friulano grapes and international varieties that thrive in Friuli, especially in Collio, with its outstandingly favourable geology, soil types and site climates. The bright yellow hue introduces a soft, complex, fruit-rich nose enhanced by lingering mineral notes. The warm, broad palate echoes the nose, revealing balanced acidity and impressively rich fruit on the long finish.

Technical notes
The vines are planted to marl and sandstone on a medium to steep slope with excellent aspect and position. Vinified separately, the Friulano, Chardonnay, Sauvignon and Pinot Grigio were cold macerated and aged in stainless steel.

Food pairing
Delicious with light starters, baked rice or pasta, fish and white meats; serve at about 14 °C

Producer
Everything hinges on one exceptionally well-aspected ”cru”, or vineyard, on a gentle hillside where vines and gardens surround the Zuani cellar. The varieties planted are Friulano, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio and Sauvignon, a carefully chosen range that produced the first vintage of ZUANI COLLIO BIANCO. The challenge that Patrizia Felluga and her son, Antonio and daughter, Caterina, have taken up is to make only wines that are genuinely typical of the region and this territory, the Collio. It is unusual to find a wine made from Friulano, Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay and Sauvignon that is not named for its variety. Zuani Collio Bianco comes from a conscious decision to make a wine captures the fabulous aromas and structure of the grapes in the blend. Zuani has produced two complementary wines. The first, ”Zuani Vigne”, is fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks to bring out its fresh, fruit-rich personality. The second, named simply ”Zuani Zuani”, is obtained from selected late-harvested grapes and aged in barriques of French and American oak, with frequent lees stirring. The Zuani winery embodies the Felluga family winemaking heritage and expresses the fundamental unity of the traditional aspects of Friulian varieties with their more modern side. It is a project the Fellugas are approaching with an open mind and a fresh, innovative perspective on the region and its wines. Zuani is Patrizia Felluga’s winery. The cellar applies a philosophy born of years of experience in vineyard and cellar, backed up by the knowledge acquired through Patrizia’s proven entrepreneurial skills.
