De Lorenzi - Pravisdomini, Friuli Venezia Giulia

The De Lorenzi estate, in Pravisdomini, is situated about one hour to the north east of Venice. It was established in 1973.

I met Carlo De Lorenzi through a very scientific process. When at Vin Italy in 2016, I stoically took up residence in the Friuli Venezia Giulia (Home of Pinot Grigio) Pavilion for an extended period to find a good PG, which is really a "must have" wine for the portfolio. I forensically looked for the best labels (how else do you buy?) and then tasted the wines. My criteria was quaffability but with some complexity to pander to the wine snob in me...and the price point had to be right. After countless false starts I landed on this wine. The fact that the De Lorenzi's are a delightful family who employ sensitive chemical free winemaking practices is a bonus.
