The 2019 Friulano Buri wafts up with a tropical and perfumed display that shows young mango, papaya, spiced orange peels and anise offset by honied florals. It’s silky-smooth in texture, contrasting zesty citrus with a pronounced inner sweetness, along with salty minerals which add further tension toward the finale. Hints of tannin create a tactile feel as this tapers off savory and poised. The 2019 is full of potential, but it needs a little time to flesh out.
"The 2021 Friulano Buri Bellaria is smoky and mineral in the glass, with pretty herbal tones and green apples giving way to dashes of candied ginger. This is silky, nearly oily in texture, with an opulent mix of ripe melon and candied citrus. The acidity saves the day, perfectly crisp and cleansing, bringing a hint of tropical kiwi and florals into the mix, as the 2021 finishes with outstanding length. The Bellaria is more sensual than the San Zuan, yet both are equally enjoyable." - Eric Guido, Vinous
