  • Regular price $28.00
  • 9 available

REGION: Friuli
APPELLATION: Friuli Colli Orientali Bianco
GRAPE: 100% Chardonnay

WINEMAKER NOTES: Meroi's small-production wines are fermented and left to age in the same very used barrels. Organic
farming is embraced here, and in place of chemical pest control, the family encourages the natural battle between insects.

TASTING NOTES: Bright straw yellow color. Ripe and nuanced bouquet of yellow fruits, yeasty pastries and fresh mountain air. On the palate, Nestri reveals energy and concentration in a mineral-salty style that is deeply flavored while avoiding any sense of heaviness.

PAIRING SUGGESTIONS: Antipasti and salads. Vegetable risotto, Sogliola alla mugnaia

ABOUT THE WINERY: Meroi is a family run wine estate located in Buttrio, amidst the Colli Orientali del Friuli wine area. The winery was founded in 1920 by the current owner Paolo Meroi’s great grandfather, Domenico Meroi. Meroi wines are marked with incredible elegance and texture. They are both voluptuous and statuesque with clean racy acidity that often belies the density hidden just beneath the surface tension. The greatest and utmost care is taken to work with each varietal in a dedicated and passionate way, respecting the terroir and particular aspects of each micro-plot.
