Boccaccio, the author of The Decameron, specifically mentioned the grape in his diatribe against the vice of gluttony. Unfortunately, this illustrious history was interrupted by the Phylloxera epidemic, after which many Friulian vineyards were replanted with international varieties instead of Ribolla.

  • I have had a few Ribolla Gialla all from the same southern Napa Vare vineyard. Arnot-Roberts, Matthiasson and RYME.
