Ribolla Gialla Collio DOC - 2019
Ribolla Gialla is a very old variety from Friuli-Venezia Giulia. The earliest mention of its wine dates from 1296! Traditionally, varietal wines have been light-bodied and high in acidity, sometimes slightly floral. More recently, ambitious and innovative producers have been making more concentrated and characterful versions with a deep yellow color and rich yellow fruit, sometimes nutty and mineral.
Ivan Muzic, is been guiding the family company now for thirty years. His great passion for nature and his land makes him a free spirit born to live within his vineyard beside the weather or the season. Orieta, the wife, together with Elija and Fabian, the sons, have been supporting the father's passion both in the vineyards and in the cellar for years. The company holds 20 ha of planted vines and seems that there is no reason to stop growing. Their mission is first to respect three main objectives: growth, tradition, and environment. This love for nature, its fruits, and the environment let them obtain the MAGIS certification, which guarantees the full environmental sustainability of the wines.
The wine shows a light straw yellow color, with notes of citrus fruit and a floral tinge. Light body and refreshing balanced acidity, with a nice and elegant finish.
Vinification through de-stemming and crushing of the grapes following a maceration on the skin of 12 hours, at low temperature. Follows fermentation for 8-10 days and aging on "fine lees" with lees stirring for at least 4 months.
