How it is made
Ribolla Gialla boasts a long history. Believed to be originally from Istria, this grape variety has been cultivated in various wine regions of Central Europe and finds its ideal growing area in Friuli-Venezia Giulia. Maschio dei Cavalieri interprets this grape with a sparkling version that stands out for its aromas and fragrance. The use of the Long Charmat method, which involves a longer period on the lees, ensures a vibrant and distinctive sensory profile.
With its characteristic aroma of ripe fruits, Ribolla Gialla Maschio dei Cavalieri delights the palate with pronounced acidity, refreshing flavours and a pleasant minerality, derived from the unique soil and climate features.
