Ribolla 2013

Marjan Simčič

This Ribolla, from middle-aged vines, is light yellow, with gold accents; the bouquet is specifically soft (notes of lemon, green apple, citrus and grapefruit) and fruity. The harmony of acids, the full body and distinct minerality complete the taste to its excellence.

Characteristics and description
Ribolla is a Slovene autochthonous variety growing only in Goriška Brda region. It grows best on Brda marl soil (opoka) under the influence of the mild Mediterranean climate. In the past, it was a simple wine as the vine could be very loaded. This Ribolla, from middle-aged vines, is light yellow, with gold accents; the bouquet is specifically soft (notes of lemon, green apple, citrus and grapefruit) and fruity. The harmony of acids, the full body and distinct minerality complete the taste to its excellence.
