Beaming straw yellow. Nose: a frank olfactory intensity, evoking elegant floral scents, fresh recalls of aromatic herbs and delicate citrus fragrances. Palate: minerality and freshness are balanced by a pleasant glycerine roundness.
There, where our gaze follows the lines of hills and green terraces, oft-times lingering on verdant woods then sweeping across the plain to the far horizon and the glittering contour of the sea. There, where vines are gently caressed by a sweet breeze, protecting them from the old north wind. There, where acacia, chestnut and ancient oak grow, silent witnesses to ancient wine-making traditions matured slowly in technique and wisdom. There, where over the millennia clay marl and sandstone forged gentle hills whose soil is ideally suited, for its position and composition, to vine-growing.
Amidst the rolling hills of Friuli Coli Orientali DOC zone, famous for the prestigious Ramandolo and Picolit DOCG wines, these magical places are home to the La Roncaia vineyards, highly select hectares nurtured by the loving care of people who cherish precious jewels.
Pairing Suggestions: Finger food, hors d’oeuvres. Excellent with oysters and venus clams.
Maturation: Fermentation develops in controlled low- temperature stainless steel vats and is followed by a slow maturation. After the necessary period of ageing in horizontally place bottles, La Roncaia Ribolla Gialla is introduced into the market.
