Available:  Only one left $41.99
Size: 375.00ml
Italy’s most precious and prized dessert wine is Picolit, made from the eponymous grape variety in Colli Orientali del Friuli. Because of a genetic malady known as floral abortion, Picolit’s flowering buds don’t develop properly, resulting in poor pollination rates and an exceptionally small crop. But the few grapes remaining on each cluster are packed with flavor. Often compared to Sauternes, Picolit is a delicate and complex wine without the heaviness or over-sweetness of other Italian dessert wines. The wine offers aromas of honey, pressed flowers, dried apricot and candied orange peel. They can be paired with elegant desserts like custards and creams but an even more successful marriage is with foie gras.
