Pinot Grigio

Isonzo del Friuli DOC

Pinot Grigio

Pinot Grigio is the most popular white grape from Italy. Here at the BorgosanDaniele estate we see an example of this grape at the top of the class. The wine is aged partially in large neutral oak, giving it just the right touch of depth and complexity. A dry wine with flavors of orchard fruits like green apple and pear, orange peel, dried herbs, and hay. The texture is enhanced by 1 day on the skins and long lees aging.

POINTS OF INTEREST

All of the white wines from BorgosanDaniele are exceptional but it is the Pinot Grigio that will really take you by surprise. Most of us aren't prepared for so much depth and complexity from this common grape. Low yields, native yeast fermentation, partial barrel aging, and two separate harvests, ensures the best selection of organic/biodynamic fruit and a superior wine.

“Santòn” Vermouth Bianco

Isonzo Rive Alte

34% Malvasia Istriana, 33% Pinot Bianco, and 33% Friulano

At the base of all vermouths there is always Artemisia, a complex genius of plants that includes wormwood. In Santòn, there are three species from this genius, but the one that makes it unique is Artemisia Caerulescens (Marine wormwood), which grows in the Grado lagoon and in the local dialect it is called Santonego or Santonico from which this Vermouth takes its name.

POINTS OF INTEREST

The Santòn recipe uses 30 different species of spontaneous medicinal herbs and aromatic spices to achieve a delicate but expressive infusion that is sourced strictly from local organic gardens or foraged from the wild. The combination and infusion of herbs are a kind of magic that has taken over a decade to perfect. A very subtle balance of flavors support each other to create a compelling result, equally representing fruit, spice, and herbal notes.

Friulano

Isonzo del Friuli DOC

Friulano

This grape is the heart and soul of the Friulian people. More white wine is made and consumed here in Friuli than red - and they often still call their beloved grape, Tocai Friulano. The classic flavors shine with citrus peel, stone fruits, ginger, and floral spice along with fresh green herbs. The palate is lush, thanks to full ripeness and some aging in large botti barrels. The finish has hints of almond and a great sapidity.

POINTS OF INTEREST

Meticulous organic and biodynamic farming and a fine-tuned approach in the winery, make this example of Friulano is distinct. There are two harvests to produce this wine. The first is aged in steel and the second harvest is aged in large neutral barrels and allowed to go through Malo. Native yeast fermentation and long lees contact create a complex wine that is food friendly and a joy to drink.

Malvasia

Isonzo del Friuli DOC

Malvasia Istriana

Malvasia Istriana is a very expressive grape that grows in the Istrian peninsula shared by Croatia, Slovenia, and Italy. The aromatics of this local grape explode out of the glass with flowers, exotic fruits, apricot, and quince, combining on the palate with lime leaf and ginger, and finishing with good salinity and minerality. This wine is perfect with the local seafood but also pairs well with Japanese and Thai cuisines.

"Arbis Blanc"

Venzia Giulia IGT

40% Sauvignon Blanc, 20% Friulano, 20% Chardonnay, 20% Pinot Bianco

A blend of four grapes, Arbis Blanc receives the highest accolades from trade publications throughout Italy. The flavors are perfectly integrated giving you both profound texture and energetic fruit. The Sauvignon Blanc leads with fresh green herbs and citrus, Friulano adds spice, ginger, and stone fruit, but it is the Chardonnay and Pinot Bianco that offer a breadth and weight that captures our attention.

POINTS OF INTEREST

This wine represents the best fruit from certified organic vineyards, masterfully blended, and aged in large neutral barrel for one year. Mauro and his sister Alessandra have run the estate since 1990. Today they utilize intensive biodynamic practices in the vineyards and a natural aproach in the winery. They have a perpetual cuvee of the “Arbis” blend that they started in 1997 and utilize part of this reserve wine to add depth and complexity to their flagship cuvée.
