May 2023

The 2021 vintage of Bracco 1881 La Mont Brach Friulano Collio DOC showcases the beauty of the Friulano grape grown in Italy’s esteemed Collio DOC region.

The wine’s aromatic profile is fresh and lively, characterized by enticing scents of green apple, white peach, and apricot. A subtle mineral undertone adds complexity and depth to the nose.

On the palate, this Friulano is dry, crisp, and displays a linear structure. The fruit flavors are well-balanced by refreshing acidity, while a delicate almond note adds further dimension to the overall taste. The finish is long, leaving behind a vibrant combination of crisp fruit and a touch of salinity.

The Bracco 1881 La Mont Brach Friulano Collio DOC 2021 exemplifies the quality and character found in wines from the Collio DOC region. It is a versatile wine that can be enjoyed on its own or paired with a range of dishes, including seafood, poultry, and creamy pasta creations. If you appreciate premium Italian white wines or seek to explore new and exciting flavors, I highly recommend giving this wine a try. Enjoy 2023 to 2033+. Tasted May 2023, 93 points. Matt Steeves
