"Yellow Hills" Ribolla Gialla Collio DOC 2021 - Castello di Spessa

Ribolla gialla is a white grape variety indigenous to Friuli-Venezia Giulia. One of the best-loved regional varieties, it is undoubtedly among those most used to produce very interesting wines. Castello di Spessa offers it here in a very 'typical' version, produced from grapes harvested in an estate vineyard planted in 2000. In this case, the roots are in a soil known as Ponca, consisting of marl and sandstone. We are in Capriva del Friuli, in the Collio area. The harvest takes place in the second ten days of September, when the grapes have reached full ripeness. Once in the cellar, the grapes are immediately sent to a rapid transformation that begins with the fermentation phase in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. At the end of this process, the wine is then refined, again in stainless steel, in contact with its noble lees until March. This is followed by bottling and a further period of ageing in the cellar before final release. Straw yellow in colour, the nose expresses citrus and floral scents. In the mouth, however, it immediately reveals great freshness with a long, creamy finish. It goes well with light appetisers, fresh cheese, sliced meats and raw vegetables. Also ideal with seafood dishes and delicate fish preparations. Excellent with omelettes.

The region is Friuli Venezia Giulia. The winery is that of Castello di Spessa. We are, let us be clear, in one of Italy's most prestigious wine-growing areas and one of the area's most qualitative wineries. The origins of the winery date back to the late 1970s, when Loretto Pali bought an estate of around 60 hectares in the Isonzo area. Then, in 1987, the property was further expanded with the acquisition of the Castle and a further 28 hectares of vineyards, this time in the Gorizia Collio, in Capriva del Friuli. All of Castello di Spessa's wines are produced from its own vineyards, where typical local grape varieties dominate with: Ribolla Gialla, Friulano, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Pinot Bianco, Pinot Nero, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The wines are then aged in the medieval cellars and in the bunker, dug under the castle during World War II (and only discovered in 1987 during a renovation). Situated at a depth of about 18 metres, at a constant temperature of 14 degrees, the bunker is the ideal place for ageing the estate's fine wines.
