Absolute top white wine. A blend of Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Malvasia, Istriana and Picolit. Simply unique. Ready to drink now and can be stored until 2028+. The Vintage Tunina from Jermann, is also called the Tignanello of white wines. It is one of the first to open the door to the new-style white wines from Friuli. In the new-style wines, a mix of grape varieties is used to create beautiful blends.

One of the top producers from Friuli and one of the most famous makers of Italian white is undoubtedly Silvio Jermann. The Jermann family domain is located in the extreme northeast of Italy in the hilly region of Friuli, near the Slovenian border, in the DOC Collio, and dates back to 1881. Since Silvio, the third generation, took the helm in 1975, there has been an enormous rotation has taken place. By continuously investing and making optimal use of the sandy and marl-containing soil so suitable for the white grape varieties, he expressed his urge to innovate, with fantastic results as a result. This made him a worldwide phenomenon. Elegance, depth, richness, structure and minerality characterize wines, which are served in many starred restaurants worldwide.

The Tunina grapes come from one of the best vineyards in Jermann. The color of this wine is straw yellow gold, the aroma intense, full, with hints of honey and wild flowers. The taste is full and round, velvety with a nice long finish. For this special combination of grapes, the picking takes place approximately two weeks later than the normal harvest. The name Tunina refers to the previous owner of the land on which the vineyard is located and is also dedicated to a governess from Venice, mistress of Cassanova, who was called Tunina, the diminutive of Antonia, as her real name was.

The 2019 vintage is one of the best vintages. Suckling (97/100) writes: "....One of the best I have tasted in a long time. Drink or hold"
