Wine Advocate 93 points - A pure expression of Friulano, the 2009 Plus (now labeled as an IGT wine) occupies its own category on the continuum between sweet and dry. Approximately 10% of the grapes from the hilltop (70-year-old) Buttrio-Premariacco vineyards are air-dried for one month and some have been affected by botrytis. This accounts for the wines deeply golden color, its luscious creamy density and those sweet endnotes of dried apricot and candied almond. This wine is built to last and will surely gain in complexity as it evolves in the cellar. This is a spectacular effort and a very rare wine on the spectrum of Friuli whites. Drink: 2014-2022. (Dec 2013)

Producer
The Bastianich winery, founded in 1997, strives to understand the history and culture of Friuli-Venezia Giulia and take it to a new level. Restaurateur Joseph Bastianich with his mother, the renowned chef Lidia Bastianich, bought a vineyard in Buttrio, a town in the Colli Orientali DOC. The family is very precise in their winemaking, controlling yields so that each individual vine produces one bottle of wine. They employ traditional manual methods in the vineyard and create wines that express the character of the land.
