This wine is sure to be a conversation-starter, you won’t believe you are looking at a Pinot Grigio. The unique light pink color with coppery highlights is the result of prolonged contact with the skins of the grapes during cellar fermentation. Refreshing fruit and flowery undertones complement this gorgeous wine that is sure to impress, you can’t find anything else like it!
Aransat is Friulian slang for "orange-colored". For those of you interested in Natural and Orange wines, this is a must-try! Produced by Borgo Savaian. Three generations deep, this wine is a family affair with the younger generation inspired to take over for their parents after enjoying a bottle of Friulano in the family vineyard at age 14. This is Italy after all. The family focuses on farming indigenous varieties and is committed to a natural lifestyle that is in harmony with its surroundings.
This vibrant orange wine is a brilliant amber-rose color with coppery tones due to 20 days of skin contact. The Pinot Grigio Ramato Vis Uvae by Il Carpino is a unique interpretation of this varietal that astounds with its complexity and aromatic finesse.
The Malvasia by Il Carpino is a well-structured and full-bodied orange wine, vinified like red wine: with long maceration, and aged in oak. It has rich and intense scents of dried fruit, honey, and yellow fruit in syrup. The taste is warm and full-bodied, smooth, and complex.
A Chardonnay from 2013? Believe it! The winery Il Carpino near the Slovenian border makes lovely minimal intervention wines. This reserve Chardonnay from the Venezia Giulia denomination is made with 7 days of skin contact and aged in large Slavonian oak for a year followed by aging in stainless steel, then held in bottle for several years before release.
