Ribolla Classic L

Wine description

Ribolla is a Slovene autochthonous variety, which is said to be giving best results 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. Our 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.

With food

We recommend trying it as an aperitif in spring and summer. It can be served with lettuce, vegetables, asparagus, white meat, sea food, rice. We especially recommend it with modern cuisine, and also with sushi.

Brda Classic

Years of experience have shown that white wines produced in this way, with their expressive structure, which is not lost after maturing in the bottle for some years, should gain in expressive elegance laced with a marvellously pleasant minerality.
