SILK - Friulano 2018 - White Wine
This Friulano is the Sauvignon Blanc of Italy and is an uncommon wine and rare to find in the United States. It’s named 'Silk' because it is elegant and noble, and meant for sophisticated wine drinkers and identify themselves as real white wine lovers. If this sounds like you, you’ll love our SYLTBAR Friulano. This item is available exclusively on SYLTBAR.com.

All SYLTBAR wines are time – honored with the value of a long fermentation. The grape has time to develop to the full ripeness. Other Brands like to skip the long fermentation process (time is money) and they have to use much more sugar to make the wine taste full. A set of actions has always guided our wine producer with maximum respect of health for human beings
Very Low Sulfite Wine
Sulfites are a natural by-product of the fermentation process that act as a preservative against certain bacteria. A short fermentation process doesn’t produce enough sulfites to preserve a wine for more than a few weeks, which is why added sulfites become necessary. Wine ranges from about 5ppm (5 parts per million) to about 250ppm/L. The legal limit in the US is 350ppm g/L. We are transparent, that is why you will find the filling date on our Mr and Mrs SYLTBAR bottles.
The majority of wines are not vegan or even vegetarian friendly. All wines are cloudy and contain microscopic molecules. Our wines stay in the tank long enough to self-stabilize with the slow sedimentation of these particles. 95% of the wines contain clarifiers like egg white, gelatin and fish bladder to clear out those particles. Time is so essential for a 100% natural produced wine.
Organic / Green Project
SYLTBAR wines are much more than simply Organic. The Green Project is a set of actions, behaviors and procedures that have been put in place to contribute to the environmental sustainability of our business, respecting the existing territorial balance. “Social responsibility” has always guided our wine producer with maximum respect for the communities in which the winery operates. 100% no Additives
4- From the graves of Friuli the label takes its name from the cadastral denomination in which the vineyard is located, pure tocai vinified in stainless steel only. A Friulian with a great personality! Warm and melted, although evident, ripe aromas ranging from yellow fruit to flowers, hay, mint and iodized note, mouth of great structure with perfect results and despite its character, it can be ***** with great taste! Character and refinement and great balance. Pleasant and long almond finish.
Excellent white wine; perfect by the pool on these spring days or with your favorite fish or chicken.
Loved it! Will order more. Not sweet not too dry. It was a nice balance. White wine
2017 Vintage - Had with benedetta in Venice. Wonderfull
The taste was great. The perfect balance of light but flavorful. Will definitely be buying more.
I really like this wine. It’s crisp and is perfect with fish or chicken or just sipping by the pool in the summer.
Just like the fabric, Silk, is so smooth. I must admit that I typically don’t buy white wine but ever since my first shipment, I’m in love with this white wine. It’s very different than any other I’ve had, it’s not buttery or full of citrus. It’s just wonderful. I love it with fish but I also love it just whenever.
This is one of the best white wines. It’s a dry one, with fruity undertones. I personally love it.
great with risotto (translated)
