Galea Bianco 2016
Colli Orientali del Friuli Friulano DOC - 2016
This wine is very similar to Brazan. Why do they produce two wines? Mostly same grape variety, same vinification technique, all things being equal but the terroir: these 2 wines come from 2 different vineyards, hence all the differences are given by the terroir factor. Drier and sunkissed the Galea vineyard, bringing more earthy flavours, and a minerality of baked stones. More humid and with more diurnal variation the Brazan vineyard, which gives more hydrocarbonic aromas, and a minerality of salty sea air.
Earthy, deep, terroir-driven classic old-school blend. Almonds, sun-burned stones, honey, anice.
