Ratings & Reviews
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2012 Vintage):
"The 2012 Lus Ribolla Gialla shows crisp lines and nice floral intensity. Puiatti adopts a “save the trees” philosophy therefore no wood is used to age its wines. Here, you get bright rose and honeysuckle backed by preserved lemon and fresh apricot. The mouth-feel is mild, fresh and easy drinking." - Monica Larner (Dec 2013)
Wine Enthusiast (2012 Vintage):
"Puiatti adopts a “save a tree” philosophy and does not use oak barrels to refine its white wines. The natural aromatic richness of the grape comes though with caramel and exotic fruit. But the bouquet is mild overall and the mouthfeel is crisp and compact." - M.L. (6/1/2013)
