2021 Jermann Vinnae Ribolla Gialla
One of the top producers from Friuli and one of the most famous makers of Italian white is undoubtedly Silvio Jermann. The Jermann family domain is located in the extreme northeast of Italy in the hilly region of Friuli, near the Slovenian border, in the DOC Collio, and dates back to 1881. Since Silvio, the third generation, took the helm in 1975, there has been an enormous revolution has taken place. By continuously investing and making optimal use of the sandy and marl-containing soil so suitable for the white grape varieties, he expressed his urge to innovate, with fantastic results as a result. This made him a worldwide phenomenon. Elegance, depth, richness, structure and minerality characterize wines, which are served in many starred restaurants worldwide.
Vinnae is mainly made from Ribolla gialla supplemented with Riesling and Friulano. The Vionnae has a bright, pale straw yellow color with fruit aromas with a mineral undertone in the nose. In the mouth it is dry, fresh and spicy with the understated elegance of an authentic Friuli wine. Vinnae is delicious as an aperitif and it is an excellent match with a creamy risotto and grilled fish. Its freshness and irresistible drinkability make it the ideal summer white
The name Vinnae was created at 1983 vintage to celebrate the birth of second son Silvio Jermann and to commemorate the Jermann family's '100 Years of Viticulture in Villanova'. Five generations have been working in the Collio vineyards of the village so they earn the designation "vinnaioli" or "winegrowers" Hence the choice of the name "Vinnae" The label was restyled in 2004 with the addition of a symbol of the Austro-Hungarian origin of the Jermann family, a two-headed eagle found on an old barrel belonging to Silvio Jermann's great-grandfather Anton. The phrase "servus cella" refers to the cellar, while the mention of the varieties of the cuvée recalls the (triple) heritage of Slovenia, Friuli and Austria.
