Why we love it
Maia is an orange wine made with cortese grape, the same grape used in the Gavi, from an old vineyard that had been abandoned and now brought back to life cultivated following the biodynamic philosophy.
Maia is an orange wine that does not contain added sulphites, follows the natural approach with the fermentation made using yeasts naturally present on the grapes. The wine is unfiltered, resulting in a complex orange wine with a rich and warm nose with mature white fruit notes. In the palate the wine is full, elegant, balanced, structured with a long finish.
Maia is a very versatile orange wine that pair pasta to white meat to fresh, medium matured cheeses.
The artisan who made it
