Blending grape varieties in Sharis reconciles the culturally acquired expectations of the local consumer with those of the international wine lover, forming a link between Friuli and the rest of the world. From a winemaking point of view, blending gives the wine balance and complexity. On its own, Ribolla Gialla has aromatics that are not particularly assertive, but its contribution is important, for it gives the blend texture, freshness and vivacity. Pale canary yellow with light golden hues in colour, it is fruity, fresh with notes of pineapple, citron, peach, white flowers and hints of fresh spices. The palate is lively, fresh, excellent balance of acidity; long and persistent aftertaste with evident notes of citrus and aromatic herbs. Serve with seafood pastas, crustaceans and grilled fish.
