Ribolla Gialla

Brut Sparkling Wine

Wine characteristics Ribolla Gialla Brut Sparkling Wine

Ribolla Gialla is the most representative native variety of the Friulan hills terroir, whose history stretches back to the middle ages. It is definitely the wine of Friuli that is most suitable for the sparkling wine making process, thanks to its particular freshness characteristics.
The colour is straw yellow enlivened by its fine and persistent perlage. The delicate bouquet recalls acacia flowers. Rich and slightly aromatic in the mouth, it leaves a bread crust aftertaste.

It is the new alternative aperitif drink to go with finger food. It is ideal with entrees and pasta and rice dishes. Exceptional with shellfish and steam baked fish dishes.
