Native to Friuli, Ribolla Gialla finds its most noble expression in Colli Orientali del Friuli. Renowned and highly acclaimed since the 12th century, it has been enhanced by modern wine-making techniques that showcase its fruit and refinement.
This gets gentle pressing after harvest, cool fermentation in stainless steel, then four months maturation prior to bottling. Faded straw in colour with green reflections, the nose is honeyed with hints of baked apple, fig and wild flowers. Full of succulent fruit on the palate with sweet stone fruit offset by crunchy green apple and grapefruit, the minerally mid-palate carries through to an elegant but complex finish with hints of orange peel and flint.
An excellent and intriguing aperitif (it will have guests perplexed as to what it is), this is the perfect match for seafood starters or a delicate main course like sea bass.
