Fiegl – Vinitaly 2015

Villa Dugo Pinot Grigio 2014
Bright fresh crisp but a little shy at the moment, good texture, needs to settle a bit though. Will be perfect when it arrives.

Villa Dugo Chardonnay 2014
Nice shellfish slightly oily notes. Textural now, fruit yet to express, good acidity, nice and fresh and clean, good drinkability.

Villa Dugo Sauvignon 2014
Positively jumping out of the glass, super vibrant and pungent, sweaty varietal character. Nice and fresh not oppressive on the palate, solid varietal notes, delivers quality for price.

Ribolla Gialla di Oslavia 2012
Very pretty floral honeysuckle notes, quite lifted and perfumed, a hint of crunch too, the slightest attractive volatility. Very lean and precise on the palate, a bit of oxidative barrel character, some sweetish texture, good phenolic grip late on the palate, needs a bit more time to open up perhaps?

Cuvée Leopold Blanc 2011
Very austere pretty subtlety. Purity depth lighter on the oak, hints of some savoury texture, a great white wine to be sure.

Villa Dugo Cabernet Franc 2013
Nice focused earthy aromas, not green but some very mature herbal notes. Bright tight juicy fresh gluggable, just the slightest hint of menthol but a savoury edge to it, good tannins for the price.

Cuvée Leopold Rouge 2008
Round subtle sweet oaky dark red fruits. Balanced fresh, mellow bright, tannins there but not aggressive, good length and nice supporting barrel.

Fiegl – 12/06/2014

NV Brut Rosé (100% Pinot Grigio)
Nice savoury red fruit leesy nose. Bright tight crisp citrus raspberry fruit, very pleasant and clean.

Ribolla Gialla 2013
Clean fresh a bit of texture, hard to see the true character of the variety.

Pinot Grigio Collio 2013
Much more floral on the nose, sweet berry wine. Nice texture and length, much more serious style. Worth it for the price?

Cuvée Leopold Blanc 2010 (Ribolla Gialla, Malvasia, Friulano)
Good, not great, needs more time, oak hiding the character quite a bit.

Friulano 2013
Wonderfully intense fruit and floral aromas, good concentration but still freshness.

Malvasia 2013
Lovely and clean fresh, nice minerality, just not enough personality and structure for the price.

Cabernet Franc Villa Dugo 2012
Absolutely singing.
