"Ribolla Gialla is the autochthonous white grape par excellence. It is probably the oldest vine in the region as the earliest evidence of its diffusion dates back to the Roman Empire. Ribolla owes its name to its strong malic acid content, which in the past brought the wine to "re-boil" in barrels. This grape variety with its late bud burst and ripening is inextricably linked to the history of our hills." More at Sodevo.it.
