Bastianich Adriatico Ribolla 2010

Bastianich Adriatico Ribolla 750ml 2010      
Sku: 1702476*

Ribolla is the most typical white wine in Brda (the westernmost region of Slovenia) and Collio (the northernmost region of Italy). It is one of the most ancient grape varieties in the area, grown here since the time of the Roman Empire. This Ribolla is produced in the heart of Brda where the grape expresses its fullest potential.

Tasting notes
Our Ribolla, from middle-aged and old vines, is slightly yellow, with gold accents; the bouquet is soft with notes of lemon, green apple, citrus, and grapefruit. The harmony of acids, full body, and distinct minerality perfects the palate.

Rating
 Vinous 90 points (Sep 2011)
Bright, green-tinged yellow. Bracing, intense aromas of lemon, white pepper, white flowers and minerals. Fresh, intense and complex, with white stone fruit and lemon flavors carrying through on the long, saline finish. This bright white wine has an easy-drinking appeal that makes it hard to put the glass down. I would have scored it even higher had the palate shown a concentration and precision that matched the amazing nose. Made by Marjan Simcic of the Brda area in Slovenia, a natural geological prolongation of Friuli’s Collio and Colli Orientali del Friuli DOCs. This wine is part of the Adriatico line of three wines that Joe Bastianich has created to highlight the merits of three historic native grapes in the hands of recognized masters of the variety in three different countries on the Adriatic sea.

Food pairing
Pairs wonderfully with a variety of dishes, including asparagus, white meat, seafood, pasta, pork, and fish.
