Ronco delle Acacie 2005 - Le vigne di Zamò: quality from norteastern Italy

Le Vigne di Zamò is an important winery located in Friuli, a region next to the border with Slovenia, famous for its elegant and mineral white wines, which are probably, the best ones in Italy. Today's wine is Ronco delle Acacie, their top wine, made with Chardonnay (60%), Tocai Friulano (35%) and Pinot Blanc (5%). Vintage 2005 is characterized by a bright golden colour but what is surprising us the most is the intensity and finesse of perfumes...yellow flowers (broom, mimosa), tropical fruit, williams pear, pineapple and a gentle note of minerality (I'd say a flintstone) which takes us all along the tasting...strong, round body and an extraordinary harmony among all the components of the wine...

You can try this with marinated salmon but complexity of the wine suggests us even a match with white meats...like Thanksgiving turkey.

Price in Italian wine store: 22 euros

Price abroad: around 40 USD
