2017 Ermacora Ribolla Gialla Colli Orientali del Friuli

SKU #1408512

Dario Ermacora was one of our first Italian Direct Imports. His wines have always been textbook, classic, and archetypal for Friulian whites: understated, balanced, with a long finish. His winery is in the Colli Orientali del Friuli or the Eastern Hills of Friuli, a few scant kilometers from the Slovenian border. Most of Friuli is a flat, glaciated plain running from the Julian Alps down to the top of the Adriatic Sea, but on the eastern border the topography changes. In the Colli Orientali a series of horseshoe-shaped glacial moraines dot the landscape and make perfect vineyard sites. They call the soil in these moraines Ponca. It is calcium-rich marl that gives the wines a real zing in their finish. Dario makes all of his whites in stainless steel, no wood needed—he’s looking for the least amount of intervention. The wines have beautiful aromatics, rich bodies and vibrant cores.

We've imported the wines of Ermacora for many years and they've never been better. Especially this bright and lively Ribolla Gialla with its array of florals, lemon-citrus and spice a nicely textured palate with crisp acidity. This is the ideal wine for charcuterie and appetizers or as an aperitif on a warm afternoon.

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world.
