2014 VIlla Russiz Ribolla Gialla

The wines at Villa Russiz all come under the Collio Doc. So, too, do the three vineyard selections, Sauvignon de La Tour, Gräfin de La Tour and Graf de La Tour, the flagship wines of a range that takes the best of the past as its inspiration in the very modern search for superlative quality, for a coherent way forward, and for great wines as good as any in the world.

Perfectly ripened grapes are hand-harvested during the chilly early hours of the day. The bunches are then quickly carried to the cellar where they are gently pressed. The first must is pumped into temperature-controlled stainless-steel vats. The wine is kept on its lees for at least 6 months before bottling, 8 months after harvest.
