A new high class white wine from Friuli
Wikipedia under "white Merlot" says that this wine is made the same way as White Zinfandel. In the US, White Merlot is normally a light "blush" wine, with a bit of sweetness, very easy to drink.
Starting from an older tradition in Friuli, Italy, we have developed a totally different and original concept:
white, dry, and high class
Technically, Foffani dry White Merlot wine is completely white in color, with the complexity of a modern dry white wine from Friuli and the strength to evolve positively in the bottle for several years, like a red wine. Grapes are harvested at full technological and phenolic maturity, but before final cellular maturity to control extraction of red color from the skins. No chemical clarifiers used.
Our original vinification offers new interesting sensations: the perfume is fruity and floral, with a distinctive recall of rose fragrances; the color is pale and delicate, the body harmonic and pleasant, with a touch of salinity typical of our production area DOC Friuli Aquileia. Persistence of taste is remarkable.
This new, original dry white wine is elegant as an aperitif, a good companion of light dishes, like pasta and fish, and particularly interesting with row fish or all kinds of spicy plates. To be served at 10° temperature.
