Turian Ribolla Gialla Colli Orientali del Friuli DOC

External Review by Great Wines Direct:

Founded by Eugenio Collavini in 1896, this family owned house is now run by Manlio Collavini together with his three sons. Collavinis winery is located near Udine in the Collio region (a strip of hills against the Slovenian border). This region was only reunited with Italy after the First World War and is reputed to have one of Europe’s most priviledged micro-climates for white wines which dominate the region. Collavini were among the first to vinify Ribolla Gialla (an ancient local variety) and to implement new winemaking technologies. The winery prides itself on its clean, modern style wines while still retaining the traditions and grape varieties native to the area. Grapes : Ribolla Gialla 100% Region : Italy / Friuli Venezia Giulia / Collio DOC Maker : Walter Bergnach Notes : A medium bodied wine that is distinctive, dry and lemony with soft floral aromas from forest plants such as acacia, oak and birch. Serve : Chilled to accompany starters, soups, fish casseroles and shell fish. ABV : 13.00%
