The Zaglia estate covers some 30 hectares south-west of the province of Udine within Friuli. Situated in between the Stella and Tagliamento rivers, the land here is riddled with mineral-rich and clayey soils ideal for growing Pinot Grigio. It is the soil in combination with the diurnal shift driven by favorable breezes from the nearby Adriatic Sea which has made Friuli famous for the grape.
The 2019 Pinot Grigio is hand-harvested and aged for 6 months on fine lees in stainless steel. This maturation adds complexity while retaining freshness. 2019 was an above-average vintage in Friuli and this wine is no exception. The Giorgio Z has a lively acidity and drinks with flavors of ripe citrus and tropical fruit, along with a finish reminiscent of dried orange blossoms. This is a great wine to go with any seafood but also works especially well with creamy soups and broths. At this outstanding price and the propensity for delicious winter broth in cold weather expect this one to go rather quickly, grab some before they are gone.
