The Ribolla gialla of Collio, well-known for its versatility in vinification, may be turned into a spumante preserving its peculiar full body unaltered and yet enhancing the freshness of its spontaneous scents. A gem to which we added the perlage of a long Charmat: this is how in 2015 Ribolla Spumante Polje came to life.
Colour: brilliant straw yellow.
Nose: it starts off floral in the notes of wild flowers, quite structured thanks to the hints of natural yeasts and ripe yellow fruit.
Taste: like in the whole unmistakable Polje style, the minerality is well balanced; the perlage is subtle and pleasantly creamy.
Method of production: A soft pressing is followed by a controlled-temperature fermentation of the must. Eventually the refermentation with Charmat method takes place with a long permanence on the yeasts in pressurised tanks and then a rifinement in bottle.
Food matching: a perfect welcome glass, it has proved to suit raw fish, shellfish and seafood included.
Harvest: harvested by hand on the first ten days of September.
Bottle size: 0,75 l.
How to serve: serve at 6°-8°C, preferably in an ice bucket.
