Going east in Italy

Bastianich, Colli Orientali del Friuli, Tocai Friulano DOC 2006 Herbaceous with a sense of canned vegetables, lowish in acidity with a creamy character – disappointingly low in concentration. Estate bottled in Cividale del Fruili 13% $18.00 at Traverso’s

Bastianich, Venezia Giulia, Rosato, Refosco IGT 2007 Stewed cherries and moderate acidity; there’s a sense that this wine is already fading – another disappointment. Estate bottled in Cividale del Friuli 12.5% $ 14.99 at Traverso’s Bastianich
