Lis Neris
Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Italy
Venezia Giulia
Fiore di Campo
Flat in terms of shine, however, there's a luminescent glow to the green-tinged yellow straw hue, paler at the rims. Smoky nose with some rubber as well as damp tea bags, kind of lurches at you, the fruit is mainly pineapple, peach, guava and apple, a bit scattered and not fully tropical, no distinct citrus scents. In the mouth it's full-bodied and somewhat inert from the weight, even though it offers a mild fizzy feel. Mango, papaya, kiwi and nectarine fruit, again without bite. Minerally while there's a suggestion of oxidation. Wet driveway gravel, lemon peels, and sauna smoke fill the mid-palate. Doughy finish. Not sure what to make of it but a few years in bottle appear to have not served it well. Unspecified percentages of Tocai Friulano, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling. (Composite Cork)
