May 2016 - Monica Larner - A blend of Pinot Bianco, Chardonnay and Picolit, the 2013 Friuli Colli Orientali Illivio is a true standout in this slightly cooler vintage. The bouquet is rich and penetrating with creamy peach, apricot and white almond. Honey and toasted pine nut are also present in balanced measure. The wine is tightly stitched together with a compact texture and an enduring mouthfeel. The results are stunning.
