Poggiobello Ribolla Gialla
Faded straw-colored with soft light green reflections. Fruity aromas on the nose with hints of citrus and green apple. Extremely elegant on the palate, thanks to its minerality, and it finishes with the pleasant citrine sensation typical of this wine. Intriguing aperitif, and also a perfect match for seafood appetizers, sea-bass baked in salt, risotto with asparagus, and various souffles.

Azienda Agricola Poggiobello vineyards are located in a territory internationally recognized as one of Italy’s best for the production of white wine. Over the years, as part of the Le Tenute di Genagricola portfolio of wineries, significant land improvement projects have been made, creation of canals to drain rain water, construction of terraced vineyards and planting of new vineyards. This has allowed Poggiobello to become the largest single-plot winemaking company in the Colli Orientali del Friuli area.
The company boasts a surface area of 110-hectares, ninety of which host cultivated vineyards. It grows ancient indigenous varieties like Ribolla Gialla, Friulano, Refosco, Verduzzo Friulano and Picolit (of which Poggiobello owns the largest portion of the Colli Orientali Consortium). The company also grows the most known international varieties such as Merlot and Sauvignon, which have been cultivated in this territory for centuries.
This wine is made from 100% Ribolla Gialla. Grapes are de-stemmed and soft pressed. Alcoholic fermentation and partial malolactic fermentation occur in stainless steel containers at controlled temperatures. When fermentation is complete, the wine is left to rest for at least 4 months before bottling.
