Production information

Producer: Bastianich

Bastianich is located in Friuli and specialises in local grapes such as Friulano and Ribolla Gialla. The house style is very fresh and crisp with lots of aromatic fruit, making the wines ideal for a wide range of foods and cuisines. The wines are already rated amongst the top in the region with Vespa Bianco having been awarded Tre Bicchieri in the Gambero Rosso no fewer than 6 times! Joe also owns La Mozza based in Tuscany. The bold intense wines are the perfect foil to the fresh flavours of Friuli.

Production note

The wine is crafted by macerating and fermenting the different varieties individually in open-topped 500-litre tonneaux. Punch-down is done by hand for the softest possible extraction. A vertical wood press is used and extracts softer tannins as there is less skin-against-skin friction with this type of press. After barrel ageing separately for 18 months in Allier barrique, the blend is created and the assemblage then receives another 1 year of bottle aging before release
