2011 I Clivi di Ferdinando Zanusso 'Clivi Galea' Colli Orientali del Friuli Friuli-Venezia Giulia Italy
Certified organic. 100% Friulano from 70-year-old vines of the Galea vineyard in the Gramogliano Hills of Corno di Rosazzo, in the Udine Province. This vineyard is drier, and gets more sun than other parcels on the domaine. Vinified and aged in stainless steel, for 24 months, which drives the wine aromatic expression from primary, variety-related aromas to a deeper, more terroir-driven character. Earthy, deep, classic old-school cuvée. Almonds, sun-burned stones, honey, anise. 250 cases produced.
