Ronchi di Cialla is an historical Friulian Estate and it is strictly a family business. Ronchi, in the dialect of Friuli, means hills cultivated with vines. Cialla is a small valley surrounded by woods with chestnut, oak and wild cherry trees, in the D.O.C. Colli Orientali del Friuli area, and it is officially recognised by a Ministerial Decree as cru.
The agronomy is made with minimum treatment with non polluting products, the vinification is carried out naturally.
The company philosophy has always been to work only with indigenous varieties, such as Ribolla, Refosco, Schioppettino, Verduzzo and Picolit that in the Cru' Cialla found the perfect environment. After 40 years Ronchi di Cialla has a well established reputation on the market that is to produce some of the finest age-worthy wines of Friuli.

The schioppettino grapes which make this Ribolla Nera grow in two one-hectare vineyards owned by Ronchi di Cialla. Cjastenet faces southwest at an altitude of 150-200 metres above sea level, whilst Puoje faces southeast and is located between 160 and 180 metres above sea level. The grapes are fermented in stainless steel at controlled temperatures and undergo malolactic fermentation, before 15-20% of the wine is matured in barrels for 12-18 months. The Ribolla Nera is then further refined in bottle for one year.

A beautifully sleek, ruby red wine, this Ribolla Nera boasts fine aromas of red berries and a touch of spice with green and black pepper. On the palate, it is elegant and bright, slightly tannic with a long, satisfying finish.
