$55.00

Friulano, Ribolla Gialla

La Tunella Biancosesto is a 50/50 blend of friulano and Ribolla Gialla, two native Friuliano varieties.  The Biancosesto is a wine of great substance, with a refined and elegant bouquet of confectionary, vanilla and acacia blossoms, with fresh notes of fruit and white flowers. The palate opens with a delicate, full character, which is both supple and sapid at the same time. A wine of great character, in which of the distinguishing characteristics of its individual varieties stand out in its persistent finish, with a slight almond note from the Friulano and the freshness of the Ribolla. The Biancosesto has been aged in Slavonian oak barrels. Best pairedwith crustaceans, fish dishes and mushrooms.
