Palmina Subida 2009
This is a wine for the true connoisseur, who wants to taste the total essence of the grape. All the color and goodness from the golden-hued Tocai Friulano skins is integrated into the wine. A deep straw like golden color with tinge of green and a slight haze first states that this is not a wine for the masses. Aromas of apricot and just ripe pear are coaxed from the glass, which enjoys time and swirling to fully strut its stuff. The texture is rich and round, bringing nut-like flavors of almond and hazelnut, a hint of beeswax and more stone fruit – white peach and poached pear – before a lingering garden herb component adds another layer of complexity. The finish has a pleasing and palate cleansing note of almond bitters. Recommend serving at cellar temperature. The robust character of this wine will nicely complement a hearty seafood antipasti or a simple plate of prosciutto.
