Tasting Notes

Situated just a stone’s throw away from the Slovenian border, Edi Keber’s 10 hectares of vineyards grow on the classic ponka soil, a stony, friable marl that gives the wines remarkable weight and body. This is a full-bodied, rich white wine.

Staff Pick Notes

This is a superb white that conjures up the rolling green hills dotted with flowers in the Collio region. This is Italy's eastern most territory that shares historical ties with Slovenia and Austria. Over the years changing empires and political situations moved the borders multiple times. One of the Collio region's distinct features is its "ponka" soil, a collage of stony marble which gives the wines a vibrant mineral quality. Edi Keber is a celebrated producer who showcases how unique the wine culture is here. This wine is a blend of Friulano, Malvasia and Ribolla Gialla. Aromatic with a perfume of fresh herbs and jasmine, and surprisingly rich on the palate with notes of peony, green pear and citrus. Pair with white fish and spring vegetables.
