Why we love it
Only made in the very best vintages and only a few hundred bottles, from a single and old Riesling vineyard located in the Colli Orientali area of Friuli, this Riesling Passito is a wine with a delicate, still complex, fruity nose with vanilla hints. In the mouth, it is velvety, smooth, fruity with a never ending finish. It pairs very well with cream based desserts and soft cheeses.
The artisan who made it
Roberto Scubla is an amazing person who is very passionate about his wines. He took a big risk and left a safe job in the bank for an uncertain future amongst the vines and he has truly succeeded in what he was trying to achieve. His winery and vineyards are located in the Colli Orientali area of Friuli, north east of Italy, near the Slovenian border, where he grows native grapes like the Friulano and Verduzzo but also grapes that have found an ideal environment in Friuli such as the Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon or the Sauvignon and all his wines have plenty of character and elegance.
