Friuli Colli Orientali, Italy
This wine fabulously balances the two elements of intensity and delicacy.
Right on the Slovenian border in North East Italy, 3 brothers (Carlo, Tommaso and Michele) run the Perusini winery making some of the most elegant, subtle and certainly gastronomic wines you're likely to find.
The native and ancient vine is harvest by hand, vinified at cool temps in stainless steel tanks and aged for 6 months on its lees.
The regions flagship wine. A rich and complex nose of gooseberry, guava and kiwi fruit with a honey and almond finish
