Ribolla Gialla 'A Tessa'

  • I Clivi
  • Friuli Venezia-Giulia, Italy

Method & Production

Sustainability is core to I Clivi's ethos, they cultivate their land using organic practices for which they are certified in the vineyard. The Ribolla Gialla grapes are hand-picked in whole bunches from the Gramogliano Hills, Corno di Rosazzo, Province of Udine, along the Slovenian Border. Very gentle whole bunch pressing in order to extract only the first and cleanest part of the must. Fermentation using natural yeasts, after which the wine is matured in cement for 10 months.

Tasting notes

Subtle aromatics, with a nose of lemon zest. The palate is marked by a refreshing citric acidity combined with a salty, very dry, mineral finish.

Food matching

Works beautifully well with oysters and sushi
