Aransat (2018)

Borgo Savaian di Bastiani Stefano

  • 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.
