Kante Carso Vitovska (2005) Friuli-Venezia Giulia

A spectacular Italian white wine from Kante, a small winery in the Carso D.O.C. of Friuli. Carso, which was granted its D.O.C. status in 1985, is located on a plateau above the town of Trieste near the Slovenian border. It is here that owner Edi Kante produces some of the best white wines in Italy. The 2005 Vitovska is made from an indigenous grape of the same name that has been cultivated in the area for generations. The wine is a brilliant straw yellow color that sparkles in the glass. Vibrant acidity. Wonderfully fragrant. Beautifully balanced. A terrific wine. The only problem is that the 500ml bottle does not provide enough to enjoy.
