Professional Wine Reviews for Gravner Breg 2005

Rated 93 by Decanter
The amber-hued 2005 Breg Amphora offers up an intoxicating, heady array of spices, candied orange peel and minerals on a focused, mid-weight frame. The wine's balance is simply impeccable from start to finish. The wine boasts spellbinding purity in an utterly captivating style. For now, the 2005 Breg remains quite young, but readers who can be patient will be rewarded with an exceptional bottle of Friulian wine. Breg is Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio and Riesling Italico. (Galloni)

Additional Information on Gravner Breg 2005

Winery: Gravner

Region: Friuli-Venezia Giulia

Friuli-Venezia Giulia is an important Italian wine region, situated high in the northernmost parts of the country, and close to the Slovenian and Austrian borders. As such, there is a considerable Germanic influence on the wines of this region, with varietals such as Riesling growing alongside Italian classics such as Pinot Grigio. The finest wines of Friuli-Venezia Giulia are considered to be those which capture the alpine essence of the region, with its pine scented terroirs and crystal mountain waters which run down from the mountains. There are also several interesting lesser known grape varietals processed in Friuli-Venezia Giulia, which gives the region a unique wine culture which the local wine makers are immensely proud of, and which makes the region a fascinating one to explore.

Country: Italy

It isn't difficult to understand why Italy is famed not just for the quality of its wines, but also for the vast variety and range of characteristics found in the wines there. The terrain of the country varies wildly, from the lush rolling green hills and valley of Tuscany, to the sun drenched rocky coasts of Sicily, the mountainous and alpine regions of the north, and the marshy lowlands of the east. Italy really does have a little bit of everything. Combine this huge range of landscapes with an almost perfect climate for grape cultivation, and you have a country seemingly designed for viticultural excellence. The results speak for themselves, and it is clear to see that wine has become an inseparable part of Italian culture as a result of its abundance and brilliance. Each village, city and region has a local wine perfectly matched with the cuisine of the area, and not an evening passes without the vast majority of Italian families raising a glass of locally sourced wine with pride and pleasure.
