Ribolla di Oslavia Riserva, Primosic, 2018 (Orange wine)
Grape: Ribolla Gialla.
Friuli Venezia Giulia, Italy
The Collio Consortium was founded in 1967, of which Silvan Primosic was one of the first members: it is not by coincidence the "Number One" bottle from the Consortium is from the Primosic cellars. Decades of milestones, such as the construction of a new cellar, the current base in 1979 and the start of quality selection in 1984, mark the most recent history of the family. Thus, the wines that express the Primosic philosophy were born: Klin and Gmajne are still names that emerge from the verbal traditions and recall the appreciation of the earth where the Primosic wines grow.
Intense golden-orange colour. Characteristic and dry, the fragrance evokes acacia flowers, with undertones of bitter orange rind with pervasive mineral sensation. The finish is reminiscent of apricot stone and chestnut pulp. A superb influence of skin contact for 28 days gives character, tannic sensation and a long, balanced finish.
