Boris’s tip: Great strong white cuve. Take it with beef goulash or pork.
Intensely rich, golden-yellow colour. An elegant fruity wine, with a fragrant hint of dried flowers and buttered toast, combined with a slight note of vanilla. This bland is based on Ribolla, the most traditional grape variety in Brda region – that is why it best reflects the regional terroir. It is quite elegant, rich and creamy, because it is aged in various types of barrels that best suit each individual grape variety. Leaving the wine on the yeast, gives this very mineral wine its character. A long, warm, pleasantly bitter aftertaste is characteristic of a good Ribolla.
