EDI KEBER 2012 COLLIO BIANCO

In the hills of Zegla, right near the border between Italy and Slovenia, Edi Keber makes one distinctive bottling: The Collio. The idea is to make a wine that reflects where it’s from, utilizing the local varietals: Tocai Friulano, Ribolla Gialla and Malvasia Istriana. Fermented and refined in cement tanks, the result is certainly more than noteworthy: “...weird, wild and wonderful...” is in our notes upon tasting. The nose is sweet and intriguing with forward stone fruits, peach and apricot, mixed florals, wildflowers and honeysuckle with added notes of muscat spice, clotted cream and shortbread. The palate is rounded and fat with similar fruit flavors found in the nose (oh those stone fruits!), light spice, peach zest, notes of pear juice, a touch of citrus and lemongrass, cream, butterscotch and apricot pit. The layers are interesting and complementary, changing with each sip. The initial mouth-weight is tamed somewhat by a good, subtle streak of acidity that comes in at the mid-palate and near the finish. Something beautiful is taking place in the hills of Zegla-- and they’ve bottled it for your (and our!) enjoyment and enlightenment.
