Made with grapes: Ribolla Gialla for the most part, Tocai Friulano and Riesling Renano.
It has a clear, brilliant straw-yellow colour. Its aroma is fruity, mineral and elegant, for all its rustic forthrightness, with a taste that is dry, zesty and full-flavoured.
Like Riesling, Ribolla is one of the most acid-rich medium-bodied wines, making it excellent as an aperitif, with seafood appetisers or fish first courses. Its excellent drinkability and freshness make it especially pleasant in summer.
Silvio Jermann blasted onto the Italian stage with the first release of Vintage Tunina in 1976, an incredible multi-varietal white wine that was to last 20 years: intensely perfumed, fresh and fruity, yet featuring honey and wildflowers with a dry, soft, harmonious palate of exceptional persistence due to a particularly full body. This wine inaugurated not only a new era for his family’s winery but also for white wine vinification in Italy. Today, Silvio is equally at home with new world varieties Chardonnay and Sauvignon as he is with indigenous varieties Ribolla Gialla, Friulano, and Picolit. All his wines are extraordinary, multi-layered and extract-loaded, expressing the essence of each varietal character to its purest and fullest degree.
Recently, Silvio completed his impressive new cantina in Ruttars, adjacent to the Capo Martino vineyard. Historical native varieties, ones that have grown in the area for centuries, are vinified here, along with a growing number of red wines such as the rare and Barolo-esque Pignolo. On the wines, Silvio says “I want the wines to be genuine. I want them to be balanced and elegant but above all, they should move us, prompt our emotions and have a sense of authenticity”.
