Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Rainy and lush, 2008 saw an ideal growing season for Josko Gravner--this avant garde winemaker likes a season that lets his Ribolla Gialla grow a little bit of botrytis, the “noble rot.” Concentrated, intense and textured, this ’08 Ribolla Gialla is a triumph. This finessed wine layers its succulent orchard fruits with warm baking spices, exotic white flowers, tea leaves, toasted nuts, citrus zest and hints of mushroom. Uncurling on the palate, this ’08 Ribolla Gialla offers myriad layers of notes, all conveyed on an energetic yet subtly weighty palate; it’s extraordinary! This amber wine is best served like a red, decanted and at cellar temperature; enjoy it with hearty fare--its palate will stand up to it. Like Gravner’s Breg, a blend of white grapes, this mono-varietal Ribolla Gialla ferments on the skins for about seven months in amphora and then ages for six years in cask before bottling, without fining or filtration.
