Azienda Agricola Denavolo Dinavolino Orange
Denavolo is the private domain of Giulio Armani, the long-time winemaker at Emilia's La Stoppa. Armani founded his domain in 2005 in the town of Travo and sources his grapes from a nearby three-hectare, biodynamically-run vineyard. Here, he makes white wine in the manner of red wine, that is to say with prolonged skin maceration and pumping of the wine over the caps, technique designed to extract color, flavor compounds, and tannins for reds. The resulting wines are orange-tinted, highly aromatic, full-bodied, and tannic. Wine Notes: 25% Malvasia di Candia Aromatica, 25% Marsanne, 25% Ortugo, 25% Unidentified Varietals
A blend from 28-year old vines, this wine comes only from those at the bottom of the slope at Denavolo. Grapes are hand-picked and destemmed before fermenting naturally for more than one to two weeks on the skins, and aged on the skins for 10 months. Full bodied and very textural, this aromatic wine is perfect to transition from Summer to Fall.
