STURM Ribolla Gialla

Ribolla Gialla

A wine that embodies freshness itself. It is both straightforward and light.

Once upon a time it was served at the poorer tables: a wine to be drunk everyday, the genuine thirst quenching drink that would accompany the hard working people. We have crafted this wine preserving all its freshness and enhancing elegance: to be simple is anything but to be banal. Ribolla Gialla is a lively wine with a sharp tang, which gives it its unmistakable character. This wine has come a long way in recent years. It is now well recognised at a close-to-international level!

Star sign: Aquarius. Preferred colour: Light blue.
