George is looking seasonably moody over his wine glass. Friulano is a great winter white wine. It is full-bodied but with a snow-like freshness. Just like a heavy snowfall: dry, bright, crisp, cool.
The other reason why Friulano is suited for Last Xmas type weather is it comes from the North-East of Italy. It is no coincidence this wine comes from region surrounded by snow-covered mountains.
Luisa Friulano 2010 from Waitrose, £9.99 (on special, I’ll keep it for someone special, special)
