La Tunella winery's Biancosesto is a label that synthesizes the history and tradition of Friulian wine. It is made from two historical grape varieties of the area, the indigenous Ribolla Gialla and the international Sauvignonasse, once known as Tocai, later renamed Friulano. These are two perfectly complementary grapes: Ribolla Gialla gives vertical tension with its citrusy freshness, and Friulano gives aromatic richness and fullness. Ageing in the wood helps to create a rich and balanced white that sums up the best characteristics of the two varieties.

Biancosesto wine is one of the most representative labels of the La Tunella winery. This fine historic winery in the Colli Orientali has always been committed to producing wines with a territorial face, faithful to the best traditions of Friuli. The Friulano and Ribolla Gialla grapes come from vineyards cultivated on marl and sandstone soils, rich in minerals. Harvesting takes place in mid-September, and after a short cold maceration at a temperature of 4°C, as is the ancient custom, the grapes are vinified together with a soft pressing. The must ferments in large Slavonian oak barrels at a controlled temperature. The wine ages in wood for 9 months sur lies, with frequent batonnage, and completes the ageing period with several months in the bottle.

Biancosesto Tunella is a well-structured white wine that perfectly represents the territory's great tradition of making straightforward and genuine bottles. It is a label with a classic gastronomic vocation, particularly suitable for pairing with baked fish or seafood first courses. In the glass, it has a luminous straw yellow colour with light greenish reflections. The olfactory picture is characterized by a bouquet with scents of ripe fruit, vanilla, tropical hints, small pastries, delicate nuances of acacia flowers and fresh almonds. On the palate, it has a good structure that is creamy and intense, with complex, rich aromas that accompany harmoniously towards a fresh, savoury finish with good flavour persistence.
