WBW #41 Friuli Venezia
This varietal from northeast Italy was a real eye-opener. So much richer and fruitier than many of the crisp yet bland Pinot Grigios I've had. The aroma was very rich, full of ripe apricot. The flavor was equally lively. The Vigna Traversa Ribolla Gialla I tried was bursting with fruit, had very nice acidity and a long finish. Very satisfying and refreshing. This 2006 was about $16. Thanks for the topic!
