2017 Villa Russiz Ribolla Gialla

This light and crisp wine will go perfectly with pan-fried fish and vegetables, blue cheeses and seafood dishes made with tomatoes. Villa Russiz has long been regarded as one of the finest wineries in Friuli, as well as one of the most philanthropic in the world. The estate was founded in 1869 by French-born Count Théodor de La Tour, who brought to the region the finest clones he could find from his native country, selecting classic varietals most suitable for Collio’s unique terroir. His vineyards were the first in the region to be planted with authentic French rootstock — Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot, Cabernets, Pinot Noir, and Riesling. Ribolla Gialla is a white grape varietal that is found mainly in the Friuli-Venezia Giulia (more commonly known as just Friuli) region of Italy and more specifically the Collio DOC. Wine made from this grape is typically light to medium-bodied with high acidity and floral aromas. Collio means “hillsides” which describes the region perfectly. The grapes for this wine were all grown on hillsides giving the grapes access to stronger sunlight for a longer period of the day than if on flat land. This is very helpful in the ripening process and allows the grapes to ripen faster in vintages dealing with poor weather conditions.
