Castello di Buttrio Mon Blanc is a compendium of Friulian viticulture in a judiciously gauged blend of native grape varieties.
Friulano’s austere structure melds with the sun-kissed acidity of ribolla gialla and swathes itself in the full-bodied minerality of malvasia istriana. Mon Blanc brings together fruit-led elegance with fresh waft s of broom and all the aromas of its sun-drenched hillslope home.
