More About This Wine
Founded in 1997, the Bastianich stomping grounds cover 28 hectares in Colli Orientali del Friuli. Over ten grape varieties are planted here, but the heavy hitters, which go into the flagship Vespa Bianco, are Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Picoilit.

($38; a blend of 45% chardonnay, 45% sauvignon and 10% picolit) Medium-deep straw-gold. Fresher and more floral on the nose than the 2009, with hints of jasmine, peach, apricot and nuts. Then sweet and nicely concentrated, offering creamy flavors of butter and orange peel, plus a distinctly honeyed aspect. Finishes bright and long.
