Brilliant, with golden reflections, the wine’s bouquet is particularly spicy. After a first impression of thyme, notes of white chocolate, dandelion honey and walnut husk emerge. On the palate, it is striking for its volume and complexity. Notes of rosemary and an iodized sensation accompany through the long mineral finish typical of Ribolla del Collio.

Production Notes

The ripest grapes are delicately destemmed and pressed. After two days at 15°C the light fermentation naturally pushes up the grapes to the top of the container, the must is then separated and fermented in traditional 20hl acacia containers to refine, as per tradition, with the wine lees for nine months at low temperature avoiding malolactic fermentation

Producer Information

Attems is a name that encompasses the history of wine in Friuli Venezia Giulia. Indeed there is documentation that confirms ownership of land dedicated to viticulture in Collio by the Attems dynasty dating as far back as 1106, whereas the production of Ribolla Gialla and Refosco can be seen listed in the 1764 general ledgers. A millenary tradition that has made this winery a local reference point, with Count Douglas Attems as key protagonist: to him goes the merit of having founded, in 1964, the Consorzio dei Vini del Collio (Collio Wine Consortium). It was – in chronological terms – the third to have been founded in Italy and the first in the Friuli region.

The story of Attems is thus interwoven with history: from the Patriarchate of Aquileia to the County of Gorizia, from the First World War to the present day. Owned by the Frescobaldi family since the year 2000, Attems denotes a fascinating past, an accomplished present and a future filled with innovation.

The estate extends over 44 hectares of south-facing terraced slopes to the west of Gorizia, protected both from the cold northern winds and the characteristic “bora” wind of Trieste. The area is particularly suited to viticulture, making Friuli Venezia Giulia one of the leading grape-growing regions of Italy already since the end of the 19th century. Attems promotes both native grapes such as Ribolla Gialla, as well as other noble varieties including Sauvignon Banc, Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay and Merlot. Given the particularly idyllic environmental conditions, the vineyards flourish and yield their fruits in an ecosystem in which biodiversity reigns.
