Damijan Podversic Collio Ribolla Gialla

Wine Details

Wine Description

Hazy, reddish-orange color. Spicy, perfumed aromas of peach nectar, ginger, tangerine jam, old Cognac, even a hint of fresh raspberry. Juicy, pure and penetrating, with mouthpuckering tannins underpinning the pineapple, peach tea and citrus flavors. Finishes long and bright, with building alcoholic warmth. This strikes me as one of the most successful examples of a white wine made by long maceration on the skins, though varietal identity remains a lost cause with all these wines. Still, if you'd like to try a white wine made in the manner of a red, this is the one to go with.
