Buy Bastianich Vespa Bianco
A tightly wound balance of minerality and citrus, evolving over time into a more viscous expression of wildflowers, clover honey and mature pear. The palate sensations are more like those of a red wine. Its tannic structure and acidic backbone lend it no only immediate impact but also a long life. Vespa Bianco can be further aged up to 7-10 years after the vintage.
Wine Advocate 91 points - The 2011 Vespa Bianco is a beautiful blend of equal parts Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc with a small component of Picolit. This is a richly textured and opulent white (half is aged in stainless steel and half in Slavonian oak casks for one year) that delivers apricot, honey and a touch of caramel. It reaches profound levels of depth and harmony. Drink: 2014-2019. (Dec 2013)

The flagship wine of the Bastianich estate, Vespa Bianco was created to showcase the power and evolution that a great Friulian white can have. Consisting of equal parts Sauvignon and Chardonnay with a measure of Picolit, Vespa becomes more than a sum of its parts, a wine of uncommon complexity and longevity.
Food pairing
Roasted turkey, duck and pork. Shellfish, especially lobster and scallops. Mushroom based dishes, like mushroom risotto. Elegant cheese-dressed pastas.

Producer
The Bastianich winery, founded in 1997, strives to understand the history and culture of Friuli-Venezia Giulia and take it to a new level. Restaurateur Joseph Bastianich with his mother, the renowned chef Lidia Bastianich, bought a vineyard in Buttrio, a town in the Colli Orientali DOC. The family is very precise in their winemaking, controlling yields so that each individual vine produces one bottle of wine. They employ traditional manual methods in the vineyard and create wines that express the character of the land.
