Dario Princic Ribolla Gialla 2005 (6 pack)

 

Azienda Dario Princic is located in Oslavia in Friuli-Venezia Giulia, very close to the Slovenian border.   He has farmed his 7ha of vines organically farming without any chemical product since 1988. Vines are fertilized with manure, with only sulfur and copper treatment in the vineyards. They never buy fruit and use the grapes exclusively from their land. Before they founded their winery in 1993 they were selling the grapes to others. His yields are extremely low.  The 1ha plot of Ribolla Gialla is from 10-20 year old vines planted on the typical ‘ponca’ soil (friable calcium/limestone marl) mixed with clay.  The grapes see an extended maceration on the skins in large open-top oak and chestnut fermenters, and the wine is aged for 4-5 years in botti, tonneaux, and used barriques.  No fining, no filtering.  This vintage was aged longer and released after 2006 and 2007 because Dario felt it needed more time both in barrel and in bottle. 2500 bottles produced.
