This is basically a baby orange wine—a gateway for newbies to the category, or a softer take for amber enthusiasts. A few days of maceration gives the wine a bit more texture and complexity, but it remains approachable and explosively juicy. This Ribolla Gialla tastes of ripe orchard fruits—yellow apple skin, pear tarte tatin, cantaloupe—alongside more herbaceous flavors of chamomile, sweet sage, and pressed mint. You might call it a white for red drinkers.

Frico, nutty cheeses, polenta, risotto, seafood, fish, creamy pasta dishes, poultry, summer sunsets and good conversation.

Founded in 1967 by Giovanbattista Adami, Ronco delle Betulle continues in family hands. First passed onto his daughter Ivana in the 1980s, Ivana is today joined by her son, winemaker Simone Sechi. Located in the Rosazzo subzone of Friuli Colli Orientali, Ronco delle Betulle’s 12 hectares are farmed certified organic. Ivana and Simone focus on native grape varieties, including Friulano, Ribolla Gialla, Refosco and the hyperlocal rarity Pignolo.
