Ronco del Gnemiz Friulano “Buri Bellaria” 2019

R795.00 inc. VAT
The 2019 Friulano Buri Bellaria isn’t quite ready to reveal all of its charms, opening with an alluring yet understated bouquet of ripe pears, apples, hints of mulling spice and dusty florals. It’s an opulent and soothing expression, coasting across a medium-bodied frame with ripe orchard fruits and a hint of custard that comes forward toward the close. There’s a density here that masks a more structured expression beneath, with residual acids which maintain an energetic feel. You can certainly enjoy the 2019 now, but the best is yet to come. Give the 2019 a year or two of cellaring, and watch it shine. The Buri Bellaria hails a vineyard which is managed by the Palazzolo family in Buttrio, and it shows a fruitier and more exotic expression than the estate bottling.

Ronco del Gnemiz Friulano ‘San Zuan’ 2019

R575.00 inc. VAT
"A bouquet showing young mango, nectarine and dusty yellow florals creates an elegant introduction to the 2019 Friulano San Zuan. This gains in richness and savory depths with time in the glass. It’s silky, weighty yet poised, with sour citrus opening the experience, giving way to white orchard fruits, as masses of stony minerality collect toward the close. That said, there’s a sensation of opulence here, even as the San Zuan tapers off with mouthwatering salty tension. The 2019 could use another year to fully come together; but once it does, it should be absolutely irresistible." - Eric Guido, Vinous
