About the wine
Ribolla Gialla is a white grape grown almost exclusively in Friuli. It’s known for its floral and stone fruit flavours – characteristics so desired that this wine has been left unoaked to allow them to shine.
About the producer
The Rio Floriano winery is run by siblings Ivan and Orieta Muzic. Their grandparents bought the property and five precious hectares of Collio land in 1963. The family initially ran a small operation making house wine, but today it’s achieved new heights and become recognised internationally.
About the region
Collio is a sub-region of Friuli, where Austria meets Italy in its northeastern corner. Cool sea breezes and consistent sunshine create a unique microclimate that gives grapes a slow, steady ripening period so that once they reach fruition they’re brimming with intense, aromatic flavour.
