Ribolla Gialla

Venezie IGT

Ribolla Gialla

Another local favorite, the Friuli region is the farthest west this grape is typically grown, also found in Slovenia. A grape naturally high in acidity, the mineral character is apparent in the nose along with white flowers, wild grass, and pithy citrus. Fresh and clean on the palate, there is a distinct texture that is both firm and edgy. The finish and texture make it wonderful with raw seafood like sushi.

POINTS OF INTEREST

Ribolla is the grape and gialla means yellow in Italian. This yellow grape has a thick skin and is naturally high in acidity. It is a hearty variety that has subtle aromatics and a compelling texture. The low yields at the Maccan estate along with a lengthy period on the lees helps create something special, both compelling and enjoyable. An excellent companion to clean flavors like the ones found in Japanese cooking.

Refosco

Friuli Grave DOC

Refosco Dal Peduncolo Rosso

Refosco is not a household name anywhere but in Friuli. One of the main native red grapes of the area, it is known for its complex and savory flavors. The Maccan Refosco is pervasive with notes of wild red fruits, smoky spice, and a rustic earthiness. This ancient variety captivates with a medium body of complex, savory density balanced by subtle tannins and a fresh minerality.

POINTS OF INTEREST

Friuli is unlike any other part of Italy with Germanic and Slovenian influences that date back centuries. The region's capital city, Trieste, was once the major port for the Austrian Hungarian empire and it was in 1977 that the city was officially recognized as part of Italy. They do things their own way here and have amazing local varieties and culture.
