100% Ribolla Gialla
History of the vine:
of antique Friulian origin, with evidence dating back to the 1300's.
A very widespread vine in the hills. The sweet filtrates were highly
esteemed at the beginning of the 20th century in the Austro-Hungarian
empire. After many ups and downs the vine, vigorous, late-sprouting
and precocious in maturation still resists today in the sunniest
and driest positions. It is a grape that lends itself to the most
diverse forms of vinification from carbonic maceration to fermentation
in vats. It is for this reason that we have chosen to cultivate
it, even though in our zone it is not a DOC vine. Ribolla (literally
're-ferment') owes its name to the characteristically high content
of malic acid, which in the past made the wine ferment a second
time in the demijohn.
