2011 Damijan Ribolla Gialla Friuli

SKU #1272672 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Damijan Podversic is a leader in the orange wine movement and his Ribolla Gialla is at the head of the crowd. The 2011 Ribolla Gialla imparts oxidative notes of dusty mineral, toasted nut, canned peach and candied apricot. The wine sports a deep copper color with bright amber and golden highlights. This Ribolla Gialla drinks like a red wine thanks to its power, heft and structure. It has the criteria for long aging and probably won't change much in the short term. Aging on the lees give stability and protection. The finish is tangy and austere, but there is an interesting spot of distant sweetness that breaks up some of the heaviness. (ML)  (5/2016)

From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages.
