With a stunning display, the 2010 Ribolla Gialla is deep orange and amber in color, with a seductively sweet bouquet that shows dried orange with exotic brown spice, evolving into peach, nectarine and dusty florals. While silky in texture, underlying tension builds, as a complex mix of minerals and tannins creates a tactile feel. There’s a hint of oxidation here, as is expected from this wine, while also coming across as quite savory. Hazelnut, baked apple, ginger and a hint of vanilla, but not oak, resonate on the structured finish. Tasted blind, you’d probably guess this orange wine was a red, and as such, I recommend decanting it. It also pays to mention that this improved even further on day two. The 2010 is the current release of the Ribolla Gialla. Gravner uses spontaneous fermentation in Georgian amphorae, after which the juice is further refined for another five months before being moved to large oak barrels for another six years.(Eric Guido, Vinous, January 2021)

Not for everyone, has a Big nose and nice taste, though I prefer it with cheese.
