Ferlat Silvano 2019 Bianco Venezia Giulia
This 100% Pinot Grigio spends a little time in neutral barrels before bottling. When I first tried it, the thought crossed my mind “This is very Vermouth like”. Softer fruit up front, a combination of peaches and cherries along with hints of toasted nuts plays the balance of sweet (fruit not sweetness) and savory. Subtle floralness along with crisp minerality on the finish leaves the wine a little brighter than one might expect from their first sip.
