Ribolla Gialla is made from grapes that come from 60-year-old vines, which grow in clay-calcareous soils and are cultivated using the principles of organic agriculture. The clusters are collected by hand and fermented with their native yeasts. The must remains in contact with the skins and macerates for 35 days in open wooden barrels. The wine is aged for 30 months in French oak barrels. It is not filtered.
It is worth mentioning that Dario Princic ages some of his wines in barrels made with oak from his own estate.
Prinčič believes that the Ribolla Giallia variety works best with a long maceration process. Ribolla Gialla is an emblematic and exciting orange wine that is the best expression of the Azienda Agrícola Dario Prinčič in Collio.
Prinčič Ribolla Gialla is an orange wine with aromas of roasted almonds, sweet spices, apricots, herbaceous notes and a light sensation of hydrocarbons. A complex wine with delicate tannins that is subtle, flavoursome, mineral and unique.
