Necotium Delfino della Marchesa
Bianco della Venezia Giulia IGT
Grape Friulano, Malvasia Istriana
This is a Friulano with fifteen percent Malvasia Istriana, I think Christian has a bit a problem with the change in Friuli’s native Tocai to Friulano and this may explain the name. It is bottled as a humble IGT which gives Christian the flexibility to acquire grapes from a huge area. It was first made from the young vines at Ronco del Gnemez, an old vineyard (50 years old or more) near Cormons was added and now a combination of youth and experience. The vineyards are vinified separately in cement tanks, both are given lees contact and malolactic fermentation is blocked. The official quality is misleading in that it is quite a lot better than the price suggests.
A purity of fruit with a real depth of golden apple, marzipan, almond and hazelnut flavours, quite floral and mineral on the finish. 13.5%
