Poderi di Carlo Ribolla Gialla Orange DOC


A fun Italian skin-contact wine from the crossroads of southern and northern Europe! Bordering Slovenia and Austria, Friuli-Venezia Giulia is home to some of Italy’s most distinctive white grape varieties. Take Ribolla Gialla for example. Characterized by firm acidity and floral-fruity aromas, It’s uniquely well adapted for skin-contact wines (aka ‘orange’ wines). For this wine, the winemaking team of Poderi di Carlo allowed the wine to macerate on the grape skins for 7 days in amphora and oak vats, drawing out textural complexity and a lovely amber hue. The nose is a rollercoaster of aromas –  golden yellow apple leads into hints of orange-blossom, jackfruit, and honey. Refreshingly crisp and delicately tannic on the palate, the finish is dry and persistently evolving. This is a great introduction to the wonderful world of ‘orange wine’ and the traditional wines of Friuli-Venezia Giulia.
