"I was able to retaste a number of Meroi wines while in Friuli. Meroi, a neighbor of Miani with a number of the same vineyard sources, offers portfolio of rich and often full-throttle Friulian whites and reds. At one time, the wines of Paolo Meroi were often compared to those of Miani, as he and Enzo Pontoni were friends." -Eric Guido, Vinous
Each case includes 6 bottles each of these two 90+ point rated Meroi whites:
Meroi Chardonnay 2020
"The 2020 Chardonnay is sweetly floral with ripe apples and nuances of candied lime. This is a soft and enveloping effort with vivid peach and hints of almond paste supported by saline-minerals. It tapers off long and slightly spicy, leaving a butterscotch-like resonance"
Meroi Sauvignon Blanc 2019
"The 2019 Sauvignon Blanc balances the intense spiciness of Sauvignon with the heady and rich style of Meroi. Lemon oils and wild herbal tones come together with hints of ground ginger. This is round in texture, yet with a vibrant acid balance that communicates elegance with green citrus-tinged orchard fruits and penetrating spice. I love the contrast of salty and sweet. This tapers off long and staining, leaving a lime twang and a residual bump of acidty that keeps the expression fresh. The 2019 colors nicely within the lines of balance."
