Today, Friuli Venezia Giulia offers Italy’s biggest line-up of outstanding white wines (Alto Adige is the only other region in Italy that boasts comparable diversity and wealth of white grape varieties and wines). No other region in Italy offers as large a selection of outstanding white wines from so many different grape varieties as Friuli Venezia Giulia does, while the region’s native red grapes yield wines that are equally distinctive.
Make no mistake about it: Friuli Venezia Giulia is the region where, in the 1970s, Italy’s white wine quality renaissance began. ...Collio has long enjoyed the loftiest reputation of all FVG denominations.

Sourced directly from the cellars of Tenuta Sant'Helena in Collio (meaning "hills"), this estate-grown Pinot Grigio is one of four offerings from this stunning lineup sourced directly from the cellars of Tenuta Sant'Helena. I promise, these are all fantastic wines, crisp and delicious, exuding the fantastic terroir from which they were born. They drink beautifully now and will benefit from further aging for another 5+ years.
We are purchasing the exact same wine reviewed that frontlines at $25/bottle under the original label.
FANTINEL FRIULANO COLLIO TENUTA SANT'HELENA 2020
A subtler nose of apricot stones, blanched almonds and waxed lemons with some dried-fennel notes. It’s medium-bodied with bright acidity and a silky texture. Mineral finish. 91-POINTS James Suckling
