A wildly exotic bouquet of musky nectarines, ground ginger, cardamom and lemon rinds makes the 2018 Ribolla Gialla impossible to ignore. This is incredibly savory on the palate, with a core of salty minerality offsetting its young peach and apricot notes. This finishes chewy and savory, forcing the senses to salivate as a citrusy concentration and notes of rosemary and raw honey linger on. This is a wine of meditation, to be sure. The Ribolla Gialla of Radikon spends three months on the skins, followed by three years in large oak botti. - EG, Vinous Media

Ribolla Gialla is the area's indigenous grape.

The wine is released in 500ml and liter formats each vintage. Stanko believed that the 750ml size did not provide the right amount of wine for two people to share at dinner. Therefore, he wanted to bottle all of his wines in liters and half-liters so that two people could then have a half liter of white and a half liter of red.
In studies that he conducted with a cork manufacturer, a custom cork for these two bottles was designed that gives the optimal surface-to-air permeability ratio for aging their wines. It is a narrower, smaller cork than the classic model. In deference to this cork, Stanko himself created a prototype bottle from silicon for the new liters and half-liters, and then had them manufactured at a local bottle factory.
