Ribona, a white grape variety with ancient origins, most likely dating back to the first settlements of Greek colonists on the Adriatic coast, is to be considered one of the oldest indigenous grape varieties in our region. From this little-known but generous vine we produce the grapes for our Angera Colli Maceretesi Ribona DOC. Respecting ancient traditions, the peculiarities of this vine and these places, we produce Angera with short maceration and spontaneous fermentation in concrete tanks. After being refined on fine dregs for 6 months, the wine acquires balance and complexity that surprises over time for its evolution and longevity in the bottle.

In the glass the Angera has a beautiful straw yellow color, bright with greenish reflections. Complex to the nose with fragrant citrus and green apple notes which open towards more floral notes of wildflowers, sage and broom.
On the palate, the wine shows all its character, enveloping the mouth with its richness and marked minerality, while the intense and juicy acidity leaves a fresh final note.
This wine expresses the philosophy of the Il Pollenza estate and the desire to make the work and uniqueness of this territory known.
Excellent with seafood, try it with octopus salad and fish broths.
