Weekly Wine Deal: 2018 Zuani Collio Bianco
Regular Retail: $22.99
Deal Price: $16.99 a bottle or an additional 10% off a case
Collio sits on the northeastern edge of Italy, parallel to the border of Slovenia. It is Italy's premier growing region for white wines. The notoriety of these terroir driven, mineraly wines can be attributed to the famous Felluga family who came to the region from Croatia. Like her father Marco Felluga, Patrizia left the family winery to make her own wines that she felt were true expressions of the area. Unlike the majority of the wineries in the region, including her fathers, that produce single varietal wines, Patrizia began by making only two white wines that were blends of equal parts of Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Friulano and Sauvignon blanc. The first, our email deal this week, the 2018 vintage of the Zuani Collio Bianco, she aged in stainless steel. The other blend is aged in small format oak barrels. For both wines, the grapes are vinified separately and then blended to perfectly balance and complement the qualities of the other grapes in the wine.
Like a perfect square, the Zuani's four grape varieties frame this exquisitely balanced white wine. In the glass, the wine displays a bright sun gold color with bright white rim. It has a beautiful, elegant, subtle nose of white peach, citrus blossom, pear, melon and a distinct mineral note. The wine is broad and fulfilling with flavors that touch every inch of the palate with levity, balance and a freshness that lasts long after each sip. This wine is pure enjoyment in the glass with sophisticated elegance that can be thoroughly enjoyed on its own or make a meal sing when paired with a lovely bowl of sautéed mussels, Pasta di Frutti di Mare, baked salmon, seared pork loin or seared scallops.
