Friuli Venezia Giulia, Italy

Gravner

Anfora Venezia Giulia Ribolla Gialla

Far and away the most interesting and tasty “orange” wine I’ve had to date. Lots of lift and palpable freshness but also depth and a Gamay Beaujolais herbaceous vibe. Thank you for the intro @romo — 2 months ago

The AVA for Friuli apparently extends into Slovenia, due to historical boundaries. Did not know that! — 6 days ago

Not normally a big orange wine fan but this rocks. Wines like this make me “get it”. This was paired with smoked trout and pickled daikon, and it worked so much better with the sweet / sour / smoky than any conventional wine. Super complex, super heady, lively, incredible texture — 19 days ago

Sodevo Ribolla Gialla 2013

With a hint of age showing deeper yellow, this was fantastic! Bit more heft too w/silky mouthfeel yet firm acidic structure - crisp, clean & smooth. Not much by way of fruit on the nose, but great minerality and a stony vibe that really sang with smoked fish & briny appetizers. — 7 days ago
