Anima rebula 2019
Ribolla reminds me of beauty, tenderness and sensuality. It is no coincidence that you think of these qualities, as you feel them in color, smell and as well as in taste and all together is really gentle. So gentle that even my nono liked to say, "Ribolla is too gentle for us men." Today, we have a very respectful attitude towards Ribolla, and it is growing in true respect. This is further enhanced when we pair it with trout from our home stream. Risotto and other fish
dishes also do not resist it, as it emphasizes their taste. The ideal temperature is 14°C.
