"L'Imperatore” Ribolla Gialla Friuli Colli Orientali DOC 2020 - Ronco dei Pini

When the games get serious, The Emperor steps in. Colli Orientali del Friuli DOC, Ribolla Gialla in purity, from a vineyard that is about 20 years old. The grapes are harvested by hand, only when it is certain that they have actually reached full maturity. Delivered to the winery, they are not immediately processed but are left in the press for at least 24 hours, with cold maceration. Only then are they softly pressed and the must fermented in steel tanks at a controlled temperature. Afterwards the wine is put into second passage French tonneaux, where it will rest for the next 10 months, during which frequent battonage is carried out. This is followed by the blending of all the barrels and, finally, the bottling. The result is a glass characterized by a very intense golden yellow colour, with aromas of citrus and flowers, where the scent of acacia stands out. All this is well integrated with elegant notes deriving from the wise use of wood. In the mouth it is fresh but full-bodied. Good structure and very long persistence.

"The earth is everything, and wine is its synthesis." For those who are trying to understand the philosophy behind Cantina Ronco dei Pini, perhaps this sentence would be enough, because, to tell the truth, there are no secrets. Claudio Novello, eclectic vigneron from Friuli, works like this. No chemistry, no rush, no tricks. But having the good fortune to work only the best grapes, grown on extraordinary soils, in which mythical vineyards have their roots. We are on the gentle hills of Prepotto, a tiny town of 740 inhabitants in the province of Udine. It's hard not to be fascinated by it all. Impossible to remain indifferent to its wines of character.
