Bright, deep orange-yellow. Aromas of candied pineapple, orange peel, grilled banana, earth tones and lanolin. Juicy, smooth and concentrated, with well-integrated acidity giving shape to the herb, orchard fruit and honey flavors. Tactile and persistent, finishing classically dry and lemony but not harsh. Strikes me as richer but less nuanced and graceful than Gravner’s 2009 Ribolla Gialla. Made from a complex blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, and Riesling Italico (Welschriesling), this was fermented in amphoras with indigenous yeasts and no temperature control. The wine spent five months in buried amphoras, then six years in large oak barrels. (Ian D'Agata, Vinous, May 2018)
