RIBOLLA GIALLA

Classification: D.O.C. ISONZO

Grape variety: 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.

Wine-tasting notes: straw-yellow colour verging on slightly green, dry , fresh, vinous and rich in acidity. Reminiscent of all the tones of lemon and orange blossoms. Leaves an extremely pleasant sensation of freshness on the palate.

Serving temperature: 10/12°C.

Best served with: cold hors d'oeuvres with sweet and sour sauces, vegetables, delicate fish and fish fries, soups (especially cream of vegetable). Excellent as an aperitif.
