Collio Sauvignon Blanc 2019

This Sauvignon is tinted a very light gold, almost clear. The nose gives aromas more common to New World Sauvignon Blancs - grass, herbs, salinity. The grassiness is not, however, on par with, say, a New Zealand SB. It’s a little more restrained than that. On the palate, citrus minerality is the rule, with an extremely fresh acidity. The lemon-lime flavor comes back on the lengthy finish. Fish is a great pairing for this wine, something along the lines of a tuna salad or nicoise would be ideal.

Ronco Blanchis

Collio Friulano 2019

This clear yellow wine pours up very slightly frizzante, with a small collection of tiny bubbles clinging to the glass. On the nose there is a sweet apricot aroma mixed with a delicate blend of herbs and minerals. Those minerals drive the palate, which is exquisitely citrus. The acidity comes on strong, then softens through the sip into a gentle tingle. It is an elegant white wine, offering a perfect balance of herbal notes, earthiness and freshness. — 15 minutes ago

Edi Keber

Collio White Blend 2018

This yellow-gold wine has a complex nose which starts with a floral note and continues with lemon, apricot and a touch of lanolin. On the palate, salinity is the calling card and Meyer lemon joins in with an almond aspect. The mouthfeel is quite creamy and acidity is somewhat reserved. This will pair nicely with any sort of salad or white meat, including fish. — 7 days ago

Schiopetto

Collio Pinot Grigio 2018

Chapter 3 in my sub-20€ research.
This is the lightest and least complex. Highly drinkable, finish turns slightly spirity when the wine warms up.

Azienda Agricola Borgo Conventi

Collio Pinot Grigio 2019

The yellow-tinted wine smells floral and tropical, with white flowers, apricot and mango coming through on the nose. There is also a bit of citrus minerality, like a sidewalk after a rain. The palate shows the stone fruit and tropical aspect, with a hefty slice of acidity to go along with it. So fresh and racy is it that one can feel free to pair this Pinot Grigio with seafood rather than restrict it to salads. — a day ago

Franco Toros

Collio Pinot Bianco 2019

This wine has a nice golden color in the glass. I get a muted nose with apricot aromas foremost and citrus minerals chasing. The palate shows stone fruit and minerals galore. Acidity is nice and fresh, even zippy. The finish is medium long and carries the minerals back for a revisit. — 2 days ago

Tenuta Stella

Collio Friulano 2019

This lovely golden wine smells of candied apricots, with lemon curd and flowers in the background. There is an earthy aroma that envelops all the other fragrances. Beautiful. The apricots come forward first on the palate, with lemon zest and a racy acidity that screams for seafood, maybe oysters on the half shell. There is a wonderful salinity and a nutty flavor that comes in on the finish. — 8 days ago

Ronco del Gnemiz

Bianco San Zuan Friulano 2019

🍇2019 Ronco del Gnemiz Friulano San Juan
Enchanting and thrilling with a lovely texture. Somehow it reminds me of a mix of a white Burgundy and high quality Sancerre. A wine that is right up my alley. Serve it at 12 degrees in a generous Burgundy glass. Serve it with something tasty. 

Good concentration on the nose that opens up with some green apples, grape fruit and elder flower that is soon overtaken by richer characters of juicy peaches, orange and honey. Toasted nuts and a pronounced crushed fruit mineralogy brings further complexity.
Full bodied and a generous entry with a balancing fresh acidity. Pronounced fruit concentration and strong mid palate yet with a slime waste and lovely salty texture that brings nerve and tension through a very solid finish. Well Done!
