Why we love it
This is another fantastic and truly different orange wine, a natural wine obtained from chardonnay grapes from a 50 year old vineyard cultivated following biodynamic principles, with a very reduced yields, and then "made" in the amphora.
Everything happens in the amphora, from the long vinification on the skins (about a couple of months), to the pressing with the wine remaining on the fine lees for until the bottling. The result is a natural orange wine with a complex nose, with fruity and floral notes, with a big palate, full, rich, fruity, elegant. This orange wine does not contain added sulphites and it is made using the yeasts naturally present on the grapes, decanted and pressed, unfiltered.
The An Piota orange wine is a fantastic wine for important dishes, including fresh cheeses. Orange wine doesn't get any better than that.
