Collavini T Friulano 2017

I picked this one up on a whim, with no research. I saw that it was nice and dry and I’ve enjoyed wines from the Friulano region so what the heck. Pale in color with a nice crisp minerally nose. The wine spot on matches the nose with lots of super crisp, dry minerality, maybe some citrus/lime. Honestly I had some challenges picking out the flavors. On the medium length finish the vibrant acidity, minerality and citrus coat the mouth. This is on the verge of bitter and edgy to some. I would give it an -88. You could easily pair this with alfredo, seafood or other hearty foods and it will hold it’s own. A very nice wine. The LCBO say light and crisp? On what planet?

Quite a developed dry white with pronounced lemon-curd character on the nose. Serious depth and some structure, which are well balanced by lemony freshness at the finish. With more complexity this would rate higher. Drink now. Score – 90. (James Suckling,, Nov. 25, 2018)
