Alessandro Gallici’s vision was to craft a fine Italian white like the pricy ones you find in top spot Friuli. His, however, would be a steal. Here's his elegantly fresh masterpiece – "an aromatic mosaic" (Telegraph), all pretty peach and pear.
We’ve worked with Alessandro Gallici for over 20 years now – he’s the winemaker behind many of our most popular northern Italian wines and our best-selling Prosecco. For a long time, he was head winemaker at a top cellar in Friuli. However his vision was to break away and make a Venezie ‘Super White’ as good as top names Felluga, Jermann and the like, but at a down-to-earth price. He decided to set up on his own and we backed him all the way. His vision is a blend of the best grapes of the vintage, so the exact mix changes each year. Always aromatic, with abundant pretty fruit, the 2020 comprises Friulano, Gewurztraminer, Sauvignon and Chardonnay. It’s the kind of wine you find in chic Italian restaurants and spot on with risotto.
"An aromatic mosaic, fragrant. If you like Livio Felluga but don't have the budget for it"
