For the 17th consecutive year, the Casanova Premio once again brought the Collio’s rolling hills to life with a splendid evening of cultural exchange and debate. Not to mention a WAKE-UP CALL !
You may recall our opening harvest review wasn’t shy about noting vintage 2018 as a precocious one.
PREMATURE easily describes the 2018 vintage in Friuli. While you could also add Fertile and Productive to the mix, it’s the early onset of seasonal change that, for us, begs the deepest reflection.
One month on and the Harvest in Friuli is all but concluded. Those who were, or still are, holding on for a late harvest will have to contend with the aftermath of a September that saw in excess of 400mm of RAIN.
Emilio Bulfon is one of our worlds enduring NATIVEGRAPE HEROES. He’s one of the few who journeyed to the ‘vanishing point’ to recover Friuli’s forgotten bounty. Big descriptor, you say? Yeah well, we save it for the truly worthy.
