• "Nèstri" Bianco Friuli Colli Orientali DOC 2016

      “Nèstri” Bianco Friuli Colli Orientali DOC 2016

      Nestri Bianco is a pure variety Chardonnay, which shows off its typical aroma with great elegance. Ripe and nuanced bouquet of yellow fruits and fresh yeast pastry. On the palate, Nestri reveals energy and concentration in a style that is deeply flavoured and at the same time avoids any feeling of heaviness. An all-round harmonious white wine from a big house. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Luminous straw color. Fresh aromas and flavors of honeyed apples, pear and a whiff of crisp mountain air. A strong note of minerals emerges in the mouth on the long tactile but juicy and very fresh, saline finish." Ian d’Agata (vinous.com)

    • "Zitelle Pesarin" Friulano Bianco Friuli Colli Orientali DOC 2016

      “Zitelle Pesarin” Friulano Bianco Friuli Colli Orientali DOC 2016

      As always, Paolo Meroi has vinified a large Friulano with classic proportions, of which it is very difficult to get a bottle because of the small quantities involved. As always from micro-layer, this white wine convinces with a perfect balance of fine peach notes, a vibrating acid reader and a remarkable freshness and length. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Here is another extremely successful interpretation of a single grape variety. The 2016 Friuli Colli Orientali Friulano Zitelle Pesarin plays its best cards in the mouth, where the wine delivers satiny richness that is firm and strong. The wine's true fiber is finely knit. That inner tension frames the grape's aromas of honey, pear and green melon. Like most of the other whites from Meroi, this wine is fermented in oak and later aged in barrique for ten months. Only 1,000 bottles exist." Robert Parker

    About the winemakers
    Meroi Davino
    Friuli
    Meroi Davino

    The Lombard tribe recognised the unique location of the present-day wine village of Buttrio around two thousand years ago. It is therefore understandable that the best and most famous wineries in Friuli are to be found in the vicinity - at the beginning of the Colli Orientali del Friuli - and between picturesque hills. The Davino Meroi Winery is a small but bright star. The fortunes of the family business, named after his father, are today directed with great zeal by Paolo Meroi. Already in earlier years grandfather Domenico had acquired a large experience treasure in things viticulture. Paolo can rely on his friend Enzo Pontoni, manager of the nearby Miani winery, known for its high quality wines, for his daily work in the vineyard and cellar. But although his good wines undoubtedly bear the signature of his teacher, Paolo Meroi has developed a personal style for his white and red wines, which are full of character and only sold in small quantities. Davino Meroi's still affordable bottlings are now high on the regional leaderboards.

    In the vineyards cultivated by the young oenologist Mirko Degan, the landowner attaches great importance to a late harvest of very ripe grapes and deliberately keeps the yields per vine extremely low. This gives the wines their great structure and complexity. The juicy and concentrated grapes are expertly processed in the cellar. The must is fermented in barriques. The white wines also undergo malolactic fermentation. Paolo is considered to be a proven expert in the field of the maturation of fine wines. After all, he regularly shared his oenological findings with his friend Enzo for many years, initially swimming against the current in winemaking. The exciting, harmonious and always fragrant wines of the Davino Meroi Winery, which is still little known but admired by many competitors, are considered highly authentic by connoisseurs. However, according to the impression of some experienced observers, they are more recommendable to advanced connoisseurs than to inexperienced wine lovers.

    The Trattoria Al Parco, located in the middle of a park and around one hundred years old, is also part of Paolo Meroi's pleasure. The tavern, popular for its traditional Friulian cuisine, is run by the owner together with his wife Francesca. It is particularly known for grilled meat and game dishes. There has always been wine of its own to enjoy. During a guided tour in the Trattoria Al Parco, guests can also see Paolo's rarities. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Meroi is one of the hottest and most ambitious wineries in Friuli. The owner Paolo Meroi is ambitious and full of energy. It doesn't hurt him at all to take the advice of his close friend Enzo Pontoni from the Miani winery in the vineyard and cellar."Robert Parker
