RIBOLLA GIALLA - 2019

Tasting the Ribolla Gialla is like having a sip of Friuli history. It is a vine that has been growing on our hills for at least seven hundred years and which used to be of great prestige in medieval times. This is testified by its constant presence in all the documents of that historical period. It has probably made it here thanks to the Romans who have imported it from the Greek island of Kefalonia. The grape is suitable to various forms of vinification: pure, blended with Tocai and Malvasia, macerated or sparkling. We vinify it pure and offer it in the still and sparkling version.
