I’m serious about awesome whites, especially when it’s a unique blend of not-your-run-of-the-mill grapes! “Arbe Garbe” apparently means “bad weeds” in Friulian, but there’s nothing bad here! A full nose of peach, apricot, white tea, green tea, mint, vanilla, and lemon curd. Loads of apricots on the palate with mango, melon, and peach notes along with white tea and jasmine. AWESOME.
