We decided since our first release that our Ribolla Gialla requires even more patience than we wanted to allow. For that reason we have not released a Ribolla for two years. The extra time has paid off. This is probably our favorite wine that we have ever produced. Unfortunately there were only 44 cases bottled. The aroma is heady and resinous, full of fresh fir tips, wild sage and almond paste. The palate seems exotic and familiar, imminently drinkable yet unknowable. It displays the noble tannins of Ribolla Gialla. Forgive me for saying so but I think this combines the richness, texture, and layers of great Barolo with the freshness and thirst-quenching drinkability of great Beaujolais. And that is what Orange Wine represents in our minds.
