GRAPE / Ribolla gialla ancient, indigenous grape varietal of Friuli.
POSITION OF THE 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.
FARMING SYSTEM / Double arched cane. Reduced and load to contain the natural production abundance.
HARVEST – PRODUCTION PERIOD / Manual harvest, white wine vinification, soft pressing of the grapes. Fermentation at controlled temperature (18º C) to promote the development of the primary aromas.
REFINING / 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 store horizontally in the underground cellar.
SENSORIAL CHARACTERISTICS / Straw yellow colour, fine and pleasant aromas able to offer a fresh, floral bouquet. The flavour is full and pleasantly acidic. The acidic characteristic gives it a lovely freshness and exalts the fruity inklings (green apple).
PAIRING / Excellent for an aperitif, with light starters, delicate soup, salted fish and white meat dishes. Best served chilled (10-12º C).
