With such an exceptional response to last year's run of Italian whites from the much-heralded Collio region, I am excited to get the 2021's in front of you. These are fantastic, crisp wines with delicious profiles, exuding gobs of terroir. They're all drinking beautifully in the near-term with the ability and structure to coax out more complexity while aging gracefully over the next 5+ years.

Collio has long enjoyed the loftiest reputation of all FVG denominations. Vinous.com, Ian D'Agita
Fresh and bright with pretty lilac and citrus-crusted mineral perfume alongside hints of flint greet you on the front. This bottling is fleshy and zesty on the palate with accessible fruit nicely delineated over crystalline minerality. It's fleshing out nicely now and, while it's quite approachable today, it'll benefit from some air to bring out the deeper complexity awaiting underneath.
