I swear to god I was there, I was like “Ribolllaaaaaa”. First vintage of this after a Friulian grafting project at Johan two years prior, and we couldn’t be more stoked. Passion fruit, orange peel, and celery. Direct pressed after a short in-bin maceration, then barrel fermented.
So anyways, you guys wanna make-out or what?
drink aside a tomato pie with anchovies.
