Malvasia di Candia, Ortrugo, and Marsanne
An "orange wine", which is a white wine fermented with the grape skins like a red, and it's one of our favorites. Made by La Stoppa's winemaker, Giulio Armani, this blend comes from 28-year old vines grown in Giulio's beautiful calcareous soils. The wine unfolds with sage and orange peel on the nose, followed by stone fruits and a hint of toffee, ending with a fine balance of tannins, acidity and a hint of dried herbs. The finish last for several minutes past the first sip!
