Valpanera Bianco Tre Uve
Bianco delle Venezie IGT
Grapes Verduzzo, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay
This may not be their most prestigious white wine, but it epitomises Valpanera; every vintage has improved with careful well-judged tweaks. The 2011 release saw Verduzzo added to the usual Sauvignon Blanc / Chardonnay / Friulano blend. Friulano (the grape) sadly can no longer be legally used in a blended wine, its absence from the label did not seem to have affected the wine, it was genuinely absent since the 2012 vintage. The Friulano vineyard is undergoing a change, we have a few years to wait before the results come through.
2013 blend is Verduzzo (40%), Sauvignon Blanc (30%), Chardonnay (30%)
Nothing not to like about this wine, sauvignon aromas leading to pink grapefruit, basil and greengage flavours, perhaps a touch of melon. Soft and fresh, a touch of minerality everything is just right, a really lovely vintage. 12.5%
