Press / Wine Critic's Reviews
 

Notes from the Winemaker:
Ribolla is a Slovene autochthonous variety, which is said to be giving best results in Goriška Brda region. It grows best on Brda marl soil (opoka) under the influence of the mild Mediterranean climate. In the past, it was a simple wine as the vine could be very loaded. Our Ribolla, from middle-aged vines, is light yellow, with gold accents; the bouquet is specifically soft (notes of lemon, green apple, citrus and grapefruit) and fruity. The harmony of acids, the full body and distinct minerality complete the taste to its excellence.

With food:
We recommend trying it as an aperitif in spring and summer. It can be served with lettuce, vegetables, asparagus, white meat, sea food, rice. We especially recommend it with modern cuisine, and also with sushi.

Aging:
Maturation in the bottle may develop up to ten years.

Ratings & Reviews
92 Points - James Suckling:
"Smoky and a bit funky on the nose and richly textural and tannic on the palate, this is a powerful ribolla gialla." - (January 7, 2019)
