Region : Italy
Grape : Malvasia di Candia Aromatica, Ortrugo, Marsanne
Tasting Note :
*Orange Wine* Produced with maceration on the skins for some months, withouth additives or filtrations. It is spontaneous and dynamic, with scents of flowers and aromatic herbs. The taste is light but complex, with intense savory aromas. Very fruity, floral, young wine, pleasant to drink young with a potential to age for a few years.
About the Winery :
Giulio Armani created the estate in 2005, by producing first orange wines from a 32 year-old vineyard (Debe) on 2 ha, located between 350 and 450 meters high. There, the soil has both clay and limestone. Then, in 2008 and 2009, he planted his owned parcels much higher (500 to 600 meters high) : two plots named Campo Rotonde and Cassandra. These 3 additionnal hectares produce the wine CATAVELA; a young, fruity and light white wine. The soil is very stony with much more chalk and high draining potential.
Grapes planted are Malvasia di Candia Aromatica, Ortugo, Marsanne, Trebbiano and very little Santa Maria and Sauvignon blanc.
The work in the vineyard follow the organic culture rules with treatment only made by Copper and Sulfure.
