White Vespa 2017 - Bastianich
The Venezia Giulia Wasp Biancodi Bastianich was born in vineyards located in Cividale del Friuli, in the province of Udine.
It is obtained from a skilful blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Picolit grapes, harvested and selected entirely by hand. Fermentation takes place separately in oak and steel barrels. Subsequently the wine refines for 12 months in oak and steel barrels on the fine lees, followed by a further refinement of 12 months in the bottle before being marketed.
The Wasp Bianco di Bastianich has an intense straw yellow color. The nose opens with fresh aromas of wild flowers and citrus fruits, enriched with delicate notes of minerals and honey. On the palate it is elegant and soft, pleasantly mineral and with excellent persistence.
Excellent as an aperitif, it is ideal in combination with appetizers based on cold cuts and fresh cheeses.
The deep connection that the Bastianich family has with the wine world takes us back generations. In fact, the production and promotion of the best Friulian wines in the menus of the various restaurants of the family in the United States dates back to the seventies and eighties. It was precisely this passion for wine, combined with the desire to rediscover and rediscover one's origins, which led the Bastianich family, in 1997, to purchase the vineyards in Buttrio and Cividale del Friuli.
