"The 2008 Ribolla Gialla is the most intense, powerful and structured of the 2008 whites. I often think of Ribolla as the white Nebbiolo when it is macerated on the skins, and that comparison is certainly apt here. Hints of tangerine peel, apricot and roses emerge from this beguiling wine. Though deceptively medium in body, there is plenty of underlying structure supporting the fruit. The Ribolla turns increasing powerful and captivating with time in the glass. Give the 2008 another year or two, then fasten your seatbelt! Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020."
