Ribolla Gialla Spumante Brut
The autochthonous vine par excellence can be considered in Friuli Venezia Giulia. It is the oldest, boasting over 700 years of history. Ribolla owes its name to a peculiar characteristic: in the past, the high content of malic acid in its musts, after having finished the primary fermentation, made the wine "boil again" because of the secondary "malolactic" fermentation.
