Volpe Pasini Collection
Volpe Pasini | Friuli,Venezia, Italy
Built at the end of the sixteenth century, Volpe Pasini is one of the oldest and most renowned wineries in North East Italy, in the heart of the DOC zone of the Colli Orientali of Friuli. Led by a true star of Italian winemaking, Lorenzo Landi, Volpe Pasini’s production philosophy can be condensed into three key words: Originality (provided by the land, unequaled and exclusive), Longevity, and Pleasantness.
This mixed case includes 1 bottle of each wine:
2020 Cabernet IGT Giulia
This red in the Volpe Pasini family has the most savoury notes due to the contribution of the Cabernet Franc. The elegant herbaceousness meets a refined and elegant bold tannin, leaving us with a very complex, full-bodied wine that is an endless discovery. While its young, we have tight structured tannins and is ruby red in colour. With age it stays bold but becomes velvety and elegant turning almost amber in colour. This wine is intentionally prolonged in the maceration process to accentuate the juicy and savoury complexity qualities.
The appellation of Colli and region of Friuli are actually quite optimal for the grape Chardonnay. Although not native to the area, it is widespread now and a celebrated version of Chardonnay. Both fermentation and vinification are done using stainless steel so you get this brilliant fresh minerality that brightens the entire palate while still delivering all that you want from a classic Chardonnay. Notes on both the nose and palate are reminiscent of papaya, lemon balm, dried pineapple, wet flint rocks, peach and honeysuckle.
2020 Sauvignon IGT Giulia
This outstanding Sauvignon Blanc showcases strong structure which is balanced with the a long elegant finish full of nuances of green. The nose is lots of hay, honeydew melon and gooseberry. The palate is drenched with white peach, passion fruit and green pepper. The depth of this wine provides a developed structure and refreshing finish.
