TOC BAS 2016 Ronco del Gelso
This wine is made from Friulano grapes grown in vineyards in the lower area of Cormons. Like many other Italian native grape varieties, it has a flavour far removed from the so-called international taste, but this does not make it a minor wine.
The fruity notes of apples, peaches and apricots are replaced by hazelnuts and bitter almonds.
It is a glycerine-rich wine with firm body, characterised by light tannins reminiscent of liquorice.
It has a slightly bitter aftertaste, but surprisingly this gives it finesse and nobility.
It is always a handsome greenish colour.
