A fresh and lively nose on this indigenous Friulian white. Elegant notes of bread crust, apple and pear are flanked by delicate floral notes. The palate is fresh and offers a lovely partnership between freshness and minerality, with notes of lemon zest, apple skin and herbs lingering long on the finish.
This wine is made from 100% Ribolla Gialla, an indigenous white grape variety from Friuli. Following maceration for at least one day, the wine is then fermented in stainless steel after which it rests on the lees for 3 months.
Pair with fish, crustacean and mollusc based dishes, first course dishes with vegetables, delicate cold cut meats. Also excellent on its own as an aperitif!
Amidst the Eastern-facing hills of Italy’s Friuli Venezia-Giulia lies Cialla, a small, luscious valley coloured with forests of chestnut, oak and wild cherry trees, in the heart of the renowned Colli Orientali wine region. In Friulian dialect ‘Ronchi’ refers to hills cultivated by vines and thus, just as this family estate’s wines take their personality from the land, so do they take their name. The simplicity of the Ronchi di Cialla winery’s name perfectly reflects the ethos of this 28-hectare estate, founded in 1970 and since passed from Paolo and Dina Rapuzzi to their sons Pierpaolo and Ivan: to cherish the ancient native grapes of Friuli, working solely with indigenous varieties, including Ribolla, Redosco, Verduzzo and Picolit and, most uniquely, the Schioppettino grape, which they restored and revitalised from near extinction. Baroque, beautifully balanced, bursting with blackberries and intriguingly balsamic in personality, you’ll be thrilled they saved it.
