EnoFriulia 1996 Collio Tocai Friulano ($12.99)
This aromatic grape from Northeastern Italy makes one of the few Italian whites with really individual character, and I only wish there were more of it floating around the U.S. It's best drunk young, and this one-year-old model certainly passes that test. It's a very pale straw color. Highly aromatic, typical of the varietal, musky melon and pine. Full and bright flavors follow the nose, pleasant mixed fruit and conifers, clean and consistent in a long finish. Importer: Vin Divino Ltd., Chicago.

All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I purchase all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
