Why have we selected this wine?
Ribolla Gialla is a historically widespread vine in Friuli. Marco and his family has always been used to working with this vine. It is not always easy variety to cultivate but, once "tamed", it gives great satisfaction. After a short maceration, the fermentation takes place in steel barrels at 20/22 ° C and then the maturation "sur lie" for about six months. A simple but qualitatively good wine.
On the scenic hills of Capriva del Friuli, in the heart of Collio, Roncus winery’s vineyards lie as small spots, for a total of ten hectares.
The lands are cultivated by Marco Percio -family 3rd generation- a meticulous winemaker who has made the time a valuable allied. Some vines, for example, reach seventy years of age, and produce very few clusters but of excellent quality. The acacia woods surrounding vineyards make then even more fascinating these small terraced hills.
In the cellar, the philosophy of the long times expected long maturation; for this reason the wines do not come out until a year and a half after the harvest. Fermentation uses only native yeasts and precedes a long rest on the lees in steel or wood: the aromas thus tend to concentrate and to give their best. Finally, the wine is bottled without filtration, according to a traditional protocol that determines production criteria.
