This orange wine was produced without the addition of sulphites or yeasts. The grapes were macerated with the skins and seeds for three months; the pigment and tannins were released into the wine and imparted the coppery hue. The grapes were gently pressed to release the juice which fermented with natural yeast. Matured in terracotta amphora, whose natural porosity provides oxygenation thereby reducing the acidity and refining the tannins. The wine was aged in the amphora on its lees until bottling, which took place without fining and just a gentle filtration.
An aromatic orange wine with delicate floral notes of rose, quince and apple. The palate is fresh, fruity and harmonious finishing with a little grip, leaving an impression of pleasant tension.
