Girolamo Dorigo 2005 Colli Orientali del Friuli Ribolla Gialla ($17.99)
Clear light gold. Grapefruit and white pepper on the nose and palate; juicy and fresh, clean fruit over a hint of stony minerality, wrapped up with a high note of fresh-fruit acidity and a distinct scent of lemon. Very attractive wine, more than just a summer sipper. US Importer: Panebianco LLC, NYC. (Jul 6, 2007)

FOOD MATCH: Made to go with seafood, it was beautiful with sea scallops and jumbo Alabama shrimp pan-seared in butter and olive oil over linguine.



Wine notes in 'shelf-hanger' format:
We publish Wine Lovers' Page tasting reports in the familiar "shelf-hanger" size and format, to make it easy for wine merchants or collectors to print them out, clip and post them where this wine is displayed. We do ask, however, that the name, logo and URL be left intact, and that these reports be used with the specific wines rated, not different bottlings or vintages.

Our tasting policy:
All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I accept no free samples from wineries or distributors, purchasing all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
