In Italy’s most confused wine region, Albus provides a strong example of the best characteristics of Friulian white wine. It is one of an increasing number of singular and iconic white wines distinguishing themselves from the crowd of varietally named wines in Friuli, This wine’s success will be due to the expression of its regional personality and fruit, and its seamless balance. This is a Friulian white that would be recognized as “typical” by the grandparents of today’s Friulian winemakers, but which conveys its cultural authenticity in a thoroughly modern way.
Albus is, relatively speaking, a “Wine for Adults”, bone dry, and carrying considerable minerality, while still selling at a very fair price. Those not familiar with Friuli will identify Albus most closely with dry Loire valley Chenin Blanc.
This wine is dry, full and harmonious, keeps a good acidity with a long and lingering finish.
