Tasting Notes: The i Clivi Ribolla Gialla is aromatically neutral with hints of lemon zest. The palate is crisp and lean; it's marked by refreshing citric acidity and a long sapid texture. Minerals and salinity define the beautiful finish.

Winemaking Notes: Manually harvested whole clusters are gently pressed in order to extract only the first and cleanest part of the must, which is immediately pumped to a stainless steel vat where most solids and heavy parts decant overnight. In the morning, the upper part is racked off the bottom to another stainless steel tank. Fermentation occurs spontaneously with native yeast. The Ribolla Gialla matures on its fine lees for 6 months to avoid reductive effects and to gain the stabilization and anti-oxidative benefits that these natural components bring. The wine is bottled with a light filtration, meant only to eliminate the cloudiness brought by the floating lees. 30 mg/L of SO2 are added. The total SO2 is 50 mg/L.
