Friuli in the northeast of Italy is an ideal region for growing white wine grapes like Ribolla Gialla. It is protected by the Alps to the north and receives the sea breeze from the Adriatic Sea in the south. The favorable conditions were known even in Roman times when the region was devoted to winemaking.
Ribolla Gialla is an ancient indigenous variety from northern Italy that is not often found elsewhere. Select handpicked grapes of optimum ripeness are gently pressed immediately after harvest and undergo a cold-temperature fermentation in stainless steel tanks. As there is no oak aging, the finished wine is a beautifully pure expression of the Ribolla Gialla grape.
