Thanks to its rounded palate, still Ribolla Gialla is the ideal accompaniment for seafood dishes.
It pairs exceptionally well with fried fish thanks to its acidic content which “cleanses” the palate without overpowering the characteristics of the dish. Excellent as an aperitif, it also pairs beautifully with mild cheeses and vegetables. Best served at 8-10°C.
Ribolla Gialla is a white grape variety originating from Friuli Venezia Giulia. It is believed that its name hints at what used to happen years ago during the wine-making process before they learnt how to control the temperature. Due to the high quantity of malic acid used by bacteria for malolactic fermentation, the must began to boil which is why they called this wine “Ribolla” (which means boiled or fermented).
