Story of the Wine:
An ancient grape variety Ribolla Gialla was well established in Friuli and the neighbouring country of Slovenia by the Middle Ages. Although hard hit by the phylloxera epidemic of the 19th century and frequently replaced by French varieties it is now beginning to take a more prominent role.
The Forchir estate, established in the late 19th century, has over 200 ha. of vineyards and grows a wide variety of both international varietals and indigenous grapes.
Grape(s): 100% Ribolla Gialla
Area: From vineyards near Gorizzo in the province of Udine.
The Ribolla Gialla grape is not a new grape from Friuli in north east Italy more a case of one that is a welcome re-discovery. A very earthy, characterful nose with a touch of mushrooms. On the palate it has a rich texture and well balanced finish.
