Dario Princic - Favola 2008

Absolute Stunner!

 Friuli - Italy

 Orange Wine

  Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Tocai Friulano, and Ribolla Gialla

 "This is easily one of my most favourite wines I have ever had the pleasure of tasting! It simply is a masterpiece and an absolute triumph of the 2008 vintage. Princic faced a terrible vine disease which wiped out 90% of his vineyard's crop so he couldn't make his usual single vineyard wines - this lead him to blending what was left in to this wine; 'the fable' (favola). And what a 10% this is! Immediately on the nose you are transported to the orchard where apples, pears, and stonefruit alike are at the absolute peak ripeness. There is the most hauntingly beautiful yellow nectarine note on the nose - possibly the most nectarine a wine has ever been - it is so close to the real deal its almost freaky. The palate is as well crafted as the aromatically-gifted nose is. It is fleshy and textural thanks to the clearly ripe fruit with just enough tannin and acidity to balance it all out. The Chardonnay giving body and the Tocai and Ribolla lending acidity and aromatic purity. That nectarine note slides right on through the palate but is met with a range of toffee apples, baking spices, dried thyme, and poached pear notes. Utterly delicious and very, very rare!"
