ADD

The white version of Morus is a magical blend of Malvasia Istriana and Sauvignon. The Malvasia comes from their red clay terroir at Duline; the Sauvignon comes from their sandstone marl terroir at Ronco Pittoti. The very different yet complementary grapes and terroirs create a symphony of flavor and a Friulian wine experience with few equals. Aged in neutral barrels with complete malo, Morus Alba is a full-bodied, textured white with many layers. It should be decanted and savored in large Burgundy glasses, as you would do with a fine Meursault. Discovering each arrival from Duline, getting acquainted with each, beginning to realize what you’ve got in your glass—is a profound experience. —Dixon Brooke
