Tasting Notes

This three-liter box is 100% Friulano (though, it cannot be labeled as such because the DOC's laws do not recognize box wine, as of yet). I think there is no tastier, more versatile white wine in our store right now that beats this Bianco for value and pure drinkability. It combines the body, weight and richness of what California Chardonnay feels like with the minerality and freshness of how Pinot Grigio tastes, which just makes it the perfect cocktail white. It is ideal for keeping in the fridge (I've tasted them after they've been open for 6 months and they're still rockin) for the occasional glass of white, flash deglazing a pan or the occasional, impromptu party!

    This wine in a box is an easy way to get a glass of wine if you do not want to open a full bottle. One does not have to sacrifice quality with this wine. It is nice and medium bodied with a pleasurable round mouth fill and a clean and crisp finish.This wine is dry and will be nice and refreshing alone and will go well with fish and chicken.

    Back by popular demand. I think there is no tastier, more versatile white wine in our store right now. This is three liters (that’s like four bottles), and there is nothing that beats this Pinot Bianco for value and pure drinkability. It combines the body and weight of Chardonnay (to which it is distantly related) and the minerality and freshness of Pinot Grigio. The perfect cocktail white. We sold out of this quickly last summer, so buy a couple of these. This is a great wine to serve at your Labor Day party, for camping, or just for the last warm days of an Indian summer. Sadly, we cannot ship this wine.

    Yahoo! It's back! My favorite box of wine! Honeysuckle, citrus, golden pear and cream with fabulous balanced acidity and easy drinkability! Perfect for parties alfresco on a warm night, great when the neighbor drops by unannounced, and most excellent when all you need is a 1/2 cup good white wine for a sauce or risotto (with a glass for you, too!). This is 4 bottles in one box, people—for that price, you'd be nuts not to buy two boxes! Stock up before the staff buys it all!
    Top Value!

    While visiting Giovanni Blason in we spied some odd boxes stacked in a corner. I asked Giovanni, “What the hell are these?” He responded, “You won’t want any of those; you Americans like bottles.” I responded, “On the contrary we Americans like bargains, how much is that 3-liter box.” An answer, some brief calculations on my part and I said, “Okay, we’ll take 'em"! $19.99 for 3 liters (that's four 750ml bottles). Crisp, clean, refreshing with a elegant fruitiness, touch of tarragon and a hint of mineral. If you don't want to do the math that’s $5 a bottle! Giovanni tells me it lasts for more than 3 months in the refrigerator, I told him that couldn’t happen in mine! The wine is made predominantly from Friulano

    Lucky for us in Los Angeles it is a never ending summer. So, no reason not to have this one on hand for family and friends! Heck or just hanging poolside. Wonderful floral and acidity. Super long finish to stand up to any finger food you throw at. Don't forget because of the magically bag it last for weeks in the fridge! Great for camping trips too. Enjoy!!

    A K&L direct-import, Blason's Isonzo Bianco (3L Bag-in-aBox!) maintains a permanent residency in my fridge whenever it is available, and has done since it first hit our shelves in 2008. Crisp, fruity, and refreshing, the latest release is great. It's the perfect quaffer to enjoy while cooking, as an aperitif, and it's vacuum-sealed packaging makes it great for all kinds of outdoor activities, from camping to picnics to boating. Cheers!

    The bag-in-a-box has risen again! Cast your shame aside, and just enjoy the wine. Having a fresh and friendly Italian white in your fridge for the summer is pure joy. And having 3 liters of it in an air-tight container is even better. Many of us at K&L are huge fans of the Blason wines - and I am so excited to have this format back in stock.

    OK, so this wine doesn't need a third review, but I can't help it! This box is pure genius because it is GOOD! If you are in my situation, which I am sure many out there are, one bottle a night is not enough and two is too many! I like a glass of white right when I get home, and then a nice bottle to pair up with my food. That means I have to open two bottles, or save some from a previous night. With this bag in a box, the wine lasts for weeks, if not months! I can come home and get my glass while I cook, then find the right bottle for dinner. I am sooooooo psyched about this. UPDATE: 6/10/09 THE BOX IS BACK!! SOOOO HAPPY!! SUMMER CAN BEGIN!

    Hollywood K&L staff member Chris recommended this to me (thank you!). This is an outstanding value for an everyday "light & bright" white. In theory it'll last for weeks in the fridge (my box was a household hit and didn't make it nearly so long). So cast away any pretentious prejudgments and give it a try, you could easily spend as much on a single bottle that isn't this tasty!

    Actually not related to Chardonnay, according to Jancis Robinson _Oxford Companion to Wine_. Although that's a common misconception, it's actually a mutation of Pinot Gris.
