Villa Russiz Pinot Bianco Collio Italy 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Villa Russiz is one if Collios starsFor the past few years we have been stocking their dynamite Sauvignon Blanc this year it was the Pinot Bianco that knocked-us-over! Pinot Bianco (Pinot Blanc) is often regarded as Chardonnays understudy like Chardonnay it produces a similar medium to full-bodied, round wine with good acidity, and responds well to oak maturation. Collios reputation for high-quality white wines is totally justified, in fact it is arguably Friuli-Venezia Giulias top-ranking DOC. Villa Russiz is one of Collios stars started in 1869, the vineyards were the first under authentic French rootstock, on some of the best hillside marls in the entire appellation where the sea breezes from the nearby Adriatic temper the cool winds from the Julian Alps. The winery itself was meticulously planned, with its underground structure and great vaulted ceilings that stand to this day.
