Ribolla Gialla 2019
IGT delle Venezie, Rosa Bosco, 750 ml
Intense bouquet of dried apricots, white currants, lime and acacia blossom, honeycomb, white chocolate and vanilla. Sweet and noble warming, very complex. From the very first sip, the palate is enveloped by the creamy yet fresh texture. Intense aromas of mango, peach, caramelized agrumes and apples, cinnamon and vanilla bean are revealed. A full-bodied and palate caressing wine with a fine adstringency that lingers quite a while.

Rosa Bosco, already somewhat of a legend in the oenological world of Friuli, founded her label “RB” in 1998. Her wines are vinified and aged in the de Puppi family’s traditional azienda according to the credo "quality without compromise”.
At first, Rosetta – as she is affectionately known – bought her grapes from winegrowers who were friends of hers and who grew wine exactly according to her own ideas. In 2003, she placed production in the hands of the de Puppi family.
Italy – Where wine is a way of life
The Italian wine regions are extremely diverse, and this is made clear in their wines. Established varieties such as Merlot, Syrah, and Sauvignon can be found on just 15 percent of the total vine growing area. The remaining 85 percent is reserved for autochthonous, indigenous varieties. More than 2,000 different grape varieties are grown under diverse conditions and pressed with various techniques into wines that reach the top tier of the international wine market.
