Stefano Novello is another or those winemakers who truly believe they are not here to own the land but rather to protect it and accompany the grapes in their journey from the vineyard to the bottle while they become wine. He also believes in biodynamic agriculture, hand-picking harvesting and always bottling under a waning moon. His winery, Ronco Severo, inherited from his father Severo Novello back in 1998, is located in the Italian paradise of the white wines, in Friuli-Venezia Giulia.
The white wines of Stefano are well recognized, especially among those of us with a passion for Orange wines or wines with longer periods of maceration in contact with the skins.
Ronco Severo Ribolla Gialla Delle Venezie. Ribolla Gialla 100% The fermentation is on the skins in 10-hectoliter truncated cone shaped oak vats. After pressing the wine remains on the lees for 11 months in 30- hectoliter Slavonian oak barrels and then ages in the same barrels for another 12 months. --The World of Orange Wines
Amber in color, slightly oily, medium+ acidity, good structure and minerality. A fascinating and delicious orange wine.
