Gravner Bianco Breg Anfora Venezia Giulia White Blend 2005

$64.99

Vinous, 94 Points: The 2005 Bianco Breg Anfora has developed beautifully since I first reviewed it last year. Silky tannins frame an expressive core of apricots, orange peel, flowers and sweet spices as the Breg opens up in the glass. The 2005 is a mid-weight Breg that doesn't quite have the power of other recent vintages, but that may actually work in its favor when enjoyed at the table. The long, harmonious finish makes it impossible to resist a second taste. This is one of the most elegant wines I have tasted from Gravner in a long time, perhaps ever.

Intense, quixotic, quick-changing on the nose and palate. Fruit and savoroness balanced well. Superb.

2005 Gravner Breg Anfora. Very deeply colored. Not very oxidized nose. Many orange wine producers could learn something about oxygen management from Gravner. Absolutely delicious with a lobster, rice, pepper soup and a pressed pasta with duck ragu. Savory, firm, dried fruit aromas,but not overtly oxidized.

So my second time around with Gravner was a bit more satisfying than my first, but I'm still not convinced. This bottle had notably more intensity and interest than the first time I had his wines. But I still don't... love love it. Intellectually interesting but not great really.

Softer an more elegant than expected. So pure. Overripe pineapple, apricot and almonds. Grassy mouthfeel with honeycomb wax. very dry. Very very good. I can't believe he quit making this.

Varietal > Breg but pretty sure he stopped making it to focus on the single grape stuff

This beaut was in such a good place. Floral and ripe, yet balanced and sublime. Earthy and tannic in all the right ways.
