An orange wine that is part of the side project of the winemaker of La Stoppa, Giulio Armani. The project is dedicated to making skin-contact white wines and experimenting with techniques of aging, maceration length and blending while commiting to natural fementation and organic farming.
From the mouth of the importer (Savio Soares):
"25% Malavasia di Candia Aromatica, 25% Marsanne, 25% Ortugo, 25% yet-unknown varietal; A blend from 28-year old vines, this wine comes only from those at the bottom of the slope. Grapes are hand-picked and destemmed before fermenting naturally for more than one to two weeks on the skins. There are seven to eight pump-overs in the first few days, and the wine is both fermented and aged in stainless steel; the wine spends a total of four months on the skins. A minimal amount of sulfur is added at bottling."
