Joannizza - Cantina Furlani
Cantina Furlani, now in the 4th generation hands of Matteo Furlani, are based in the Northern Italian city of Trento. They specialise in making a range of outstanding sparkling wines, fully biodynamically, representing nearly all the colours in the rainbow.
Joannizza – almost as fun to say as it is to drink, takes it’s name from the Johanniter grape and shares a lot of characteristics with it’s relative Riesling. A short period of skin contact gives it cloudy yellow, almost green colour. Lot’s of lemon and exotic fruit on the nose, softening up as it comes to temperature, with tastes of dried fruit and a touch of almond.
