Sensory profile A profound, gold-shot straw-yellow appears in the glass, conjuring up freshly-pressed juice from the ripest of grapes, clarified and concentrated by sapient winemaking. Opening its fragrant cornucopia are stylish, elegant notes of nectarine that then yield to pronounced, clean-edged interventions of apple juice, apricot marmalade, pineapple juice, ripe pear, and an entire succeeding parade of aromatic candied fruits. Only after a few moments does the nose take on an enfolding toastiness, thanks to the emergence of impressions of sweet almond and hazelnut. All the mineral-infused energy and thirst-quenching power of the Ribolla become evident on the palate. Tangy and incisive, it refreshes the taste-buds, before moving forward, leaving behind a mouth-watering trail of still-green fruit lightly balanced by its suite of tannins and lingering contrail of pleasant bitterishness. Overall, here is a wine that in its delicacy and minerality is the classic embodiment of the power, elegance, and rich fruitiness of the grape variety whose name it bears.


Pairings Ideal as “the Prince of aperitifs”! Outstanding as well with fried fish, carpaccio of Alpine trout or swordfish with olive oil and dill, first courses such as trenette al pesto or risotto with lobster. A “must-try” is as a faithful partner to sushi and sashimi!
