IL PICCOLO Sunday April 11th 2010: The French actor praises the Zuani 2009, as the Top White Wine of the event. Depardieu tasted ten Friulan white wines, one for each of the region´s DOC consortiums, but his choice, which was not guided at all, in the end fell to this "fresh and powerfull" blend that is "elegant with fantastic aromas". "the nicest thing about these wines" he added "is that each of them is created in respect of the nature of its glass and like a beautiful woman: it is difficult to choose". More specifically, Zuani is a blend that takes its name from the hillside where the vineyards from which it is born are located. It is made up of Friulano, Chardonnay, Sauvignon and Pinot Grigio. "The true ingredients" Patrizia Felluga explains "are the soil, the climate, the passion, the love, the strength and the people of the land who produce it. Then ", she adds "each winemaker adds his own sensitivity and this" she concludes "renders our DOC great and much appreciated worldwide, even without reading the label on the bottle".
