Visintini is a small producer in the Friuli region in Northeastern Italy. The almost 70-acre sibling-run farm, established in 1884, has grown to become part of the Gramogliano bio-district - putting the health of the land first and using traditional farming to produce natural and terroir-driven wines from their 35-year-old hillside vineyards. Their Ribolla Gialla is kept entirely in stainless steel for fermentation and maturation, but they continually employ ‘bâttonage’ or lees stirring to add texture and aromatic complexity. The nose is delicately floral and herbaceous with sage, lemon balm and English thyme introducing delicate citrus fruit on the palate.
