Collavini 'Benedete' Ribolla Gialla Venezia Giulia 2021 75cl


Tasting Note

A star-bright straw colour frames a fresh, fruit-driven nose lifted by citrus notes of lemon verbena and grapefruit. The clean, tangy palate tempts with a nicely gauged butteriness and a long, lingering finish.


The Collio region, a strip of hills bordering Slovenia, is reputed to have one of Europe'smost privileged micro-climates for white wines, while the red wines are also noted for their appeal. Founded by Eugenio Collavini in 1896, this family owned house is now run by Manlio Collavini together with his three sons. Located in Udine, they were among the first to vinify Ribolla Gialla-an ancient local variety- and to implement new winemaking technologies. Collavini prides itself on its clean, modern style wines, while still retaining the traditions and grape varieties native to the area. Collavini's 'Broy' is a multiple Tre Bicchieri winner and is recognised as one of Italy's top white wines. As keen dog lovers, the Collavini’s very first pet Dachshund 'Ribolla' is portrayed on the label.
