94 Points, Falstaff: "Powerful, dark golden yellow. Multilayered nose with notes of salted almond, chestnut honey and roasted apple. Energetic on the palate, compact, opens with notes of ripe pear, roasted chestnut, some honey, then fine resinous-spicy components on the finish, persistent."

94 Points, Wine Advocate: "From the town of Oslavia in the heart of the Collio appellation comes this bright copper colored wine made with the Ribolla Gialla grape in a traditional manner that truly showcases the orangish color of the skins. (The grape's name Gialla or "yellow" hints at its unique appearance.) The warm-vintage Primosic 2017 Collio Riserva Ribolla di Oslavia opens to an intriguing and complicated bouquet with elements of ripe apricot, honey-roasted nut, caramel and cinnamon. The effect is entirely smooth and silky, making the mouthfeel of this special wine its most remarkable feature. There is some tannic bite, but the wine's structure is entirely integrated and tucked in tight. This release of about 5,500 bottles is another cellar-worthy white."
