Orange You Glad We Met? (Wine Bundle of Joy)
An orange wine bundle of joy - the way wines were made, before industrialisation and modern techniques came around.
PODERE PRADAROLO, VEJ, 180, EMILIA ROMAGNA, IT.
Every year Vej is becoming more iconic in the natural wine scene, this year has again a long maceration of 7 months ageing only in stainless steel and cement with the distinct floral aromas of Malvasia di Candia, big juicy body, distinct tannins with elderflower, roses and other interesting flowers in the mouth. Of course there is the orange zest and citrus floating in there. The wines have gradually become distinct for their incredible floral aromas and bouqet of fruits as you drink them. The experience in winemaking, healthy cultivation of fruits and stylistic choices of the winery make for delicious natural wines that are of exceptional value for the complexity and substance in each bottle. Vinification is completely hands off. Long periods of maceration and mix use of concrete and wood for ageing the wines.
SCARBOLO, RAMATO, FRIULI, IT.
Connecting the two visions, IL Ramato is a contemporary interpretation of Pinot Grigio made “like we used to”. Its freshness, aromatics, and sapidity are an initiation to the complex world of Pinot Grigio, further magnified by fermentative macerations and unhurried maturations.
