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.

Harvest Note
The 2022 vintage surpassed expectations in both quantity and quality despite a summer drought. The high temperatures brought the harvest forward by a week in the Grave and two weeks in the Collio. The lack of water was mitigated by investments in irrigation systems. Pighin is converting all Collio and eventually Grave vineyards to a micronized drip systems that reduces the use of water and energy compared to the rain system. The quality of the grapes from this harvest is similar to that obtained in the best vintages.
Tasting Note
Straw yellow in color. The aroma is fruity and floral with notes of lemon and green apple. This wine is dry with bright acidity, and a good structure and finish.
Food Pairing
Fish, white meat, and vegetable dishes
