About the wine

Fondo Indizeno Ribolla Gialla is a beautiful wine that sings with vibrancy and freshness! Fragrant, tropical fruit flavours of melon, kiwi, and pineapple, balanced by citrus fruits, a lovely softness, and a nice weight to the palate.

Winemaker Christian Patat is one of Italy’s greatest talents and this is his latest project. Having been a consultant winemaker in Italy for many years, Christian has a reputation for his incredible knowledge, impeccable palate, and skill for spotting potential. Friuli, in the Northeast of Italy, is his home and the area that he is particularly passionate about, dedicated to developing the land and showcasing the region's potential, and Fondo Indizeno has been set up to do just that. They work with 15 hectares of sustainably farmed, old vines in Colli Orientali del Friuli. The grapes for this 100% Ribolla Gialla wine come from the Buttrio hills, where the vines are over 40 years old. After harvest, the grapes are softly and slowly pressed, and the must is transferred to stainless steel for fermentation. To preserve the purity of the grape and best express this unique terroir, all their wines are aged in stainless steel on the lees.
