Stunning orange wine from Italy’s Südtirol region. Beautiful orange-red color, typical of Souvignier Gris (a PiWi variety, of which Thomas is arguably the world’s best producer). Ripe fruit, apples, plums, cherries. Depth and length, with a good dose of spices. Vibrant acidity, dusty tannins and a complex mineral finish. 30 days of fermentation with the skins and 22 months aging in stainless steel and wooden barrels, before being bottled unfiltered and unfined.
Eyes: Reddish warm tones of noble amber
Nose: Aromas of plum, amarena and almond merge with resinous notes and the scent of cinnamon bark.
Mouth: This fresh, juicy wine with a velvety tannin structure remains long in the palate and has depth.
