Emilio Bulfon Cividin Tre Venezie White Wine 2021, Pinzano al Tagliamento, Italy

The Emilio Bulfon winery is located at the foothills of the province of Pordenone, surrounded by woods, hills and the banks of the river Tagliamento, one of the oldest rivers in Europe. With its vineyards it stretches all over the territory including the municipalities of Castelnovo del Friuli and Pinzano al Tagliamento, on a partly hilly surface consisting of 15.90 hectares, 11 of them devoted to the cultivation of native Friulan recovered varieties. The winery has rediscovered an ancient vine whose cultivation was once common throughout the regional foothills area, from Navarons di Meduno, where it was identified by Emilio Bulfon, to the Natisone valleys. The resulting wine was already appreciated in the eighteenth century, as evidenced by many written testimonials, in which it is defined, along with the famous Picolit, as a liqueur, that is a wine so exquisite, delicate and perfumed, to be worthy of being served to aristocrats and particularly during wedding banquets. Grape: Cividin. Cividin is a wild one and the flavors change from one vintage to another. It has a reassuring inconsistency. Color: Straw yellow. Bouquet: Fragrant, fruity (apple), intense and persistent. Taste: Dry, warm, soft, savory, balanced.
