Ribolla Gialla Collio DOC
One of the qualities of this esteemed winery is the age of their vines, and Ribolla Gialla is no different. Coming in at sixty years old, the resulting wine enjoys more structure than your average Ribolla Gialla. First mentioned in the region in the thirteenth century, the grape enjoys a long history in Friuli, and is often served as an aperitivo in any given Italian piazza.
The nose is subtle, elegant, with layered floral and fruity notes, characteristic of this intriguing native grape.
