While some are tightening up their wine supply, others have even expanded it. Many winegrowers in the hill areas, but also on the plains, have planted Ribolla Gialla in recent years in order not to miss out on a lucrative business. Dario Ermacora: "In the Colli Orientali, most of them now produce a Ribolla Gialla Spumante to counter Prosecco." The white grape variety produces rather neutral, low-acid wines with little body, which are marketed both still and sparkling or effervescent.
Damiano Meroi: "For some time now, there has been a boom in Ribolla Gialla Spumante. Whoever cannot offer sparkling wine nowadays has difficulties selling their wines. And the Ribolla now sells almost by itself!"
