Vespa Bianco PDF TECH SHEET

The flagship wine of the Bastianich estate, Vespa Bianco was created to showcase the power and evolution that a great Friulian white can have. Consisting of equal parts Sauvignon and Chardonnay with a measure of Picolit, Vespa becomes more than a sum of its parts, a wine of uncommon complexity and longevity.

GRAPE VARIETIES
45% Chardonnay, 45% Sauvignon, 10% Picolit

TASTING NOTES
A tightly wound balance of minerality and citrus, evolving over time into a more viscous expression of wildflowers, clover honey and mature pear. The palate sensations are more like those of a red wine. Its tannic structure and acidic backbone lend it no only immediate impact but also a long life. Vespa Bianco can be further aged up to 7-10 years after the vintage.

GREAT WITH
Roasted turkey, duck and pork. Shellfish, especially lobster and scallops. Mushroom based dishes, like mushroom risotto. Elegant cheese-dressed pastas.

“Layers of fruit supported
by a lovely vein of
minerality which gives
the wine notable continuity
on the palate as well as a
long, clean finish...
Clearly has the stuffing
to develop further
complexity in bottle.”
