The 2004 Ribolla Gialla Amphora is similar to the Breg in that it is rather hushed and subdued. The wine offers outstanding balance and harmony in its gorgeous, layered fruit. Here, too, the finish is impeccably elegant and pure. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2019. Gravner ferments his whites in terra cotta amphorae. After the alcoholic fermentation, some of the wine remains in amphorae into the following spring, when it is added back to the rest of the wine, which has been aging in cask. The wines complete their aging in large, neutral oak. These remain some of the most unique wines being made anywhere on the planet. They are especially remarkable for their textural elegance and finesse.
