Movia Ribolla Gialla 2014

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Waxy, leesy and woodsy on the nose, a bit monolithic and dull. Sweetly fruited in the mouth with a round soft feel and little follow through. 85pts

The main part of the business is based out of Ceglo, with vineyards straddling the territory between Slovenia (ZGP Brda) and Italy (DOC Collio).

Movia wine estate has been in the Kristančič family since 1820. The main part of the business is based out of Ceglo, with vineyards straddling the territory between Slovenia (ZGP Brda) and Italy (DOC Collio). For this reason, Movia wines use grapes and techniques sourced from both countries, reflecting the best of their terroir and traditions. Their younger wines are found in the Vila Marija range, while older wines are found in the black label Movia range, which also includes dessert styles. In addition, they produce sparkling wines and grappa.  Read less

Deep yellow, golden, bright, consistent. Notes of peaches, green apple and lemon zest, herbs, rosemary. The mouth has a great body, freshness and tasty notes work together, than closing notes of iodine and sulfur. Only for this wine after a late harvest the grapes are de-stemmed by hand and placed in new oak barrels with custom caps. Fermentation begins in the berries themselves, which gradually release the wine. After eight months of maturing, at full moon, the wine is gravity racked into bottles, no added sulphur, no filtration, no pressing.

I’d buy it again at $20 or less and let it age. Lots of minerality. Earthy. Minimal fruit. Reminds me of blonk! (Edmunds St. John)

This unfiltered white is made in Slovenia, from Ribolla Gialla fruit grown both in Italy and in Slovenia. Plump with quince, pears, and honey, this is a dry wine that drinks well today, but we're certain it will benefit from a few years of aging.

Toffee and apple tart character, with a hint of caramel. Full-bodied and long, showing lots of fruit, with caramel, dried pineapple and apple toffee pie, along with almond tart. Drink now.

Fresh, complex and airy, this traces a straight line down the palate while its sweet tropical citrus flavors expand. Full-on spice brightens the fleshy lime and orange finish, with cider-like acidity bringing flavor up from under the tongue. A great match for sushi, particularly belly tuna.

Attention red wine drinkers: have you ever wished white wines could be more like reds? When youandrsquo;re forced to drink white, do you ever wish it had texture, more flavors on the nose, more complexity, maybe a little tannin -andmdash;in other words, a red wine disguised as a white? If you can sympathize with this feeling, you need to try this white from Movia andmdash; a 300-year-old winemaking estate that has recently emerged on the international scene as one of Europeandrsquo;s most cutting-edge Biodynamic wineries. Movia, which is located in Slovenia but has vineyards which cross the border into the Italian region of Friuli, has created a white wine for red drinkers. Ribolla is one of Friuliandrsquo;s oldest indigenous grape varieties and will thrill lovers of Tocai Friuliano and Soave. Extended skin contact, aging in traditional Slovenian oak casks and barriques, two years on the lees, biodynamic process such as natural yeast fermentation, and the uniquely full-bodied character of Ribolla make this wine feel like an old red. For the wine geek looking for something completely offbeat, with a yen for earthy, big-bear-hug-of-tannin Italians, this is a must-try. A simply groundbreaking wine.

Barely touched during production, the bottling date is determined by the lunar cycle seven months after being put in barrel. This 100% Ribolla shows dried herbs and spices with a nice acidity at the end. Unique, delicious and could benefit from a decanting.

This unfiltered white is made from Ribolla Gialla. Plump with quince, pears and honey, this is a dry wine that drinks well today, but we're certain will benefit from a few years of aging. While the winery is in Slovenia, the vines are located in both Italy and Slovenia.
