Dario Raccaro is a name you will want to put on your shortlist. We adore his Friulano bottling from his 2ha in Vigna del Rolat in most years, and the 2014 is a wine that we just can't stop thinking about. Friulano is a grape that often impresses with its richness, weight and beguiling texture. Raccaro's '14 certainly displays those qualities, but it appeals on so many more levels this vintage. '14 was a tough year throughout many parts of Italy, Collio included. Despite the cooler, rainy conditions, Raccaro clearly rose to the challenge and has turned out an absolute beauty. The wine is a full 1% lower in alcohol than usual and displays a profound sense of verve, lift and minerality that are not as evident in warmer years.
