The 2013 Ribolla Gialla and Friulano San Pietro from Ferdinando and Mario Zanusso at I Clivi were shockingly good in April at Vinitaly, vivid and fresh and mouthwatering; when they arrived a few months ago, though, they had shut down completely. We re-tasted them every few weeks and just this week they came out of their shell. (In my experience, the wines that suffer the most from shipping shock are often the most interesting wines we import.) They are low in alcohol (the Friulano is 12%, the Ribolla 11%) but completely ripe, with mouthwatering fresh acidity. I am so glad we are working with these wines.
