RIBOLLITA

Ribollita is a Tuscan soup made from vegetables. The name "reboiled" derives from the need to cook it for a long time and boil it several times. The peasant tradition is to prepare on Friday evening with the leftovers of the previous days and making them cook again. There is no single recipe, each area of ​​Tuscany has its own variant, but to be called ribollita must contain beans, kale and cabbage.Here we present the dish paired with our Teroldego Rotaliano Castel Firmian.
