ITALIAN FINE WHITE WINE
The Ribolla Gialla is the one of the grapes that best describes the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region’s terroir. It had been present with the Friuli’s population since the 14th Century. It can be recognized in old paintings, read about it in old books book, hear about it in old speeches, and seen in theaters. It is already a part of the story, and since the year 1770 it had been beside the Picolit wine representing this wonderful terroir around the world.
Adriano Gigante knows these grapes very well, and he started to grow them in 1997 on Rocca Bernarda Hill. Compared to other vineyards that belong to the Gigante family, these vines are quite young, but they already give their best. The hills surrounding Corno di Rossazzo are the only place that the Ribolla Gialla grapes grown. The medium textured marly soil of Rocca Bernarda hill is probably the best in the world.
