Closely related to a sauvignon blanc, the Friulano grape is one of the oldest vines in Italy’s northern Fruili region. (It also goes by the name Sauvignonasse and Sauvignon Vert.) Aromas of acacia, nut and yellow stone fruit lead the nose. It's ripe and round, offering dried apricot, bread crust, golden apple and a note of bitter almond. Dry and fruity with an herbal finish.
