Personality: Balance it is! Lemon, orange peel, a touch of roses, light body, and good length: one of these skin-contact wines for people who are getting tired of, or freshly acquainted with orange wines.

Vineyard: Slatnik, Lucinico and Sant’Andrea, marl-clay

Making of: the grapes are hand-harvested at optimum maturity, then macerated on skins in open vats for a couple of days, based on what the given grape needs. Spontaneous fermentation in big oak vats at cellar temperature with regular manual punch-downs. Aged at least 24 months on the fine yeast in large Slavonian oak barrels. Botted solely by gravity, no filtration, fining or sulfur added.

Winemaker's Note: “The true “white” of Gorizia! Our historic research shows that the white wines of this area used to be a blend of typical varieties because such wine would give a more harmonious and naturally stable result. We choose to make this skin-contact white, coming partly from complanted vines, to honor this tradition and fight monoculture.”
