Personality: A sunny, outspoken orange wine with an intense aroma of flowers and grapes. Delicate tannins, nice salinity. Lovely with saffron risotto, carbonara, or other non-tomato-based pasta dishes; also cured or raw fish, or Asian cuisine (curry chicken, spicy stir-fries, laksa soup…)

Making of: Grapes are hand-picked in small crates, selected, then crushed, and fermented using only indigenous yeast. Maceration takes 21 – 30 days with frequent punch-downs. Aged in fiberglass tank until bottling in spring. No fining, filtration, or sulfites added (total SO2 under 10ppm).

Winemaker's Note: Fatto Coi Piedi, which means “made with feet” features the stunning Malvasia di Candia Aromatica, a grape variety found only near Piacenza and a few other areas close by. It is a thick-skinned, very aromatic grape, which turns out to be perfect for a skin-contact wine.
