Picolit

A noble ancient vine of Friuli, the Picolit has been defined as “the wine of meditation” by Veronelli, who has linked its rediscovery with no shadow of doubt to three generations of the Perusini Family. They were the first to select and the cultivate Picolit on the Colli Orientali, and then to make it know outside of Friuli. It is a wine that can be drunk by itself, at the end of the meal, or, like a Sauternes, with pate or a strong cheese. Partly allowed to dry on the vines, and partly harvested very late, the Picolit of Perusini, Matured in barriques of oak an acacia, ahs the characteristic elegant aroma of acacia flower and honey. It should be served at 14-16°C.

    Al palato è vellutato, quasi oleoso. Magnifica complessità aromatica, ricco, pieno, appagante e persistente. All'attacco, che ricorda il gusto del favo, si amalgamano sensazioni fruttate di albicocca sciroppata e pesca gialla, cremose di panna e crème brûlée che sfumano in un'elegante sapidità che sostiene l'importante nota zuccherina.
