Ribolla Gialla – DOC Friuli Colli Orientali

The story of Ribolla Gialla is wrapped in the scents of the Mediterranean. Borne by waves from the island of Cephalonia, the ribolla gialla grape found a home in the hills of Friuli. It was mentioned as long ago as the 12th century and praised by German chroniclers in the 14th. Ribolla Gialla wine has always had a special place in the viticulture of eastern Friuli, where it is part and parcel of the history of empires, peoples and places.
Vibrant, sun-ripe and characteristically fresh on entry, Ribolla Gialla offers marked minerality complementing notes of broom as it tempts the palate with notes of citrus.
