Igt delle Venezie
Ribolla gialla ancient, indigenous grape varietal of Friuli.
Position of vineyard:
Hills of Sottomonte vineyard in the municipality of Buttrio (UD). Hilly and foothill area, soil components are basically marls and clay. South-Est exposure.
Double arched cane. Reduced and load to contain the natural production abundance.
Harvest – prodiction period:
Manual harvest, white wine vinification, soft pressing of the grapes. Fermentation at controlled temperature (18°C) to promote the development of the primary aromas.
In stainless steel tanks preventing the wine from becoming clear by continuously remixing the fine dregs. The wine remains “sur lies” until bottling. The refining period continues in the bottle stored horizontally in the underground cellar.
Straw yellow colour, fine and plesant aromas able to affer a fresh, floral bouquet. The flavour is full and pleasantly acidic. The acidic characteristic gives it a lovely frehness and exalts the fruity inklings (green apple).
excellent for an aperitif, with light starters, delicate soup, salted fish and white meat dishes. Best served chilled (10-12°C).
