| 88 pts, Wine Enthusiast: "Brought to us from the distant 1999 vintage, Cialla Bianco (a blend of Ribolla Gialla, Verduzzo and Picolit) demonstrates that white wines from Northeast Italy can age. The wine delivers aromas of sweet orange, candied fruit, caramel and butterscotch. It's creamy and sweet tasting too."
Winemaker's Comments: Straw-coloured. Very dainty and elegant bouquet, with a fragrance of fruit (pear, apple and plum), vanilla and flowers (acacia and jasmine). Dry, round and well-balanced as regards acidity; a wine that yields its aroma with extreme delicacy and elegance; unique character and personality.
Can be served as an aperitif, or pairing with Fish and seafood hors-d’oeuvre; soups; saltwater and soft water fish, boiled or served with a sauce, haute cuisine; egg and vegetable soufflés; white meats with a sauce; Parma ham.
