Tasting Notes

Dario Ermacora was one of our first Italian Direct Imports. His wines have always been textbook, classic, and archetypal for Friulian whites: understated, balanced, with a long finish. His winery is in the Colli Orientali del Friuli, or the Eastern Hills of Friuli, a few scant kilometers from the Slovenian border. Most of Friuli is a flat, glaciated plain running from the Julian Alps down to the top of the Adriatic Sea, but on the eastern border the topography changes. In the Colli Orientali a series of horseshoe-shaped glacial moraines dot the landscape and make perfect vineyard sites. They call the soil in these moraines Ponca. It is calcium-rich marl that gives the wines a real zing in their finish. Dario makes all of his whites in stainless steel, no wood needed--he’s looking for the least amount of intervention. The wines have beautiful aromatics, rich bodies and vibrant cores.

    Here is one our most popular wineries from Colli Orientali del Friuli, just a few miles from the Slovenian border. I just tasted all of the new Ermacora wines and the first two things I have written down are OMG & Wow! Perfectly balanced, this wine has incredible depth and concentration with focus, there is ripe apples and pears with minerals on the front palate and is very rich and creamy on the mid-palate, great length on the finish. Serve with grilled chicken diablo or a seafood risotto.

    As much as we love all of Ermacora's wines, their Pinot Bianco always seems to remain the star of the show. It has an extra dimension of complexity and verve that make it stand out. The 2016 is bright and inviting with lifted notes of green apple and citrus that shine throughout. It's perfect with vegetable dishes and soups, risotto and fish. A real gem.
