Comelli Soffumbergo Bianco 2012 -Colli Orientali del Friuli


comelli5It was a delight to meet the charming Filippo Comelli at a recent trade tasting in London.

A multilingual polymath with a recent MBA and an interest in his families winery in the Friuli region of North East Italy.

This elegant Soffumbergo Bianco  has fruit and flower aromas in a balanced blend of Friulano, Chardonnay and Malvasia, with a drop of Picolit.

I have tried the whole range of Comelli , the quality , vibrancy and freshness is clear throughout.

This  wine was a delicious accompaniment to Vietnamese Spring rolls and coconut fish curry.

I was also fortunate enough to try the EOOS Picolit a native variety,Vino Santo with low production yields,with exotic aromas including apricot and orange blossom.

The Suffumbergo Rosso is equally impressive. Recommended buy.

Villa Vitas , Traminer Aromatico


wine of the monthThis delicate aromatic Traminer Aromatico is hands down winner of  wine of the month .
From the Friuli region of North East Italy, the origin of the grape best known as Gewurtztraminer .

This example is subtle with a persistent bouquet of sweet spices and the most beautifully balanced palate.
Highly  recommended along with Villa Vitas Sauvignon Blanc and others from their range .
