2014 Vigneti delle Dolomiti Nosiola ^ A
week of skin maceration concentrates this

2015 Colli Orientali del Friuli Ramato
Pinot Grigio (Best Buy) ^ Leonardo Specogna
keeps his pinot grigio on the skins for about
60 hours to gain a delicate copper hue and
light phenolic texture. He ages about ten percent of it in French oak barriques, lending
rich, nutty notes to the flavors of pink grapefruit and juicy peach. It feels warm and textured, with just enough acidity to refresh the
finish. § V.O.S. Selections, NY
223912

223954

90 | Vie di Romans

$38

a toasty richness after a few swirls. It feels
viscous and firm, with a hint of salinity that
brightens the finish. § Vias Imports, NY
224151

88 | Andriano

$21

2016 Alto Adige Pinot Grigio (Best Buy) ^
Scents of hops and blanched almonds lend

dishes. § Banville & Jones Wine Merchants, NY

$20

90 | Movia

$30

2015 Brda Rebula (Best Buy) ^ Matjaz Cetrtic
ferments and ages this ribolla in stainless
steel to preserve its delicate floral scents,
brisk acidity and crisp-apple and white-peach
flavors. It's refreshing, with a cool salinity
that would partner well with bivalves or crustaceans. § The Winebow Group, NY
223037
2014 Brda Rebula ^ Flavors of soft peach and
spiced cider lend an autumnal character to
this ribolla. It rested for 18 months in French
oak barriques, mellowing the flavors even as
they gather around a core of salinity that
lends energy and lift. § Domaine Select Wine
Estates, NY
224068

90 | Radikon

$43/500ml

2009 Venezia Giulia Ribolla ^ One of the
tasters on our panel compared this wine's
caramel color, oxidized character and saltedalmond notes to a Palo Cortado Sherry.
The grapes were harvested from some of
Radikon's oldest vines (averaging 50 years
of age), and the juice fermented on the skins
for one month, followed by three years of
aging in large Slavonian casks. Its flavors
evolve over several days, moving from cider
and stone fruits to peach tea, marzipan and
pork rinds, always leading to a long and salty
finish. § Louis/Dressner Selections, NY
