Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Amber in the glass this dry wine explodes with scents of honeyed tropical fruit, white flowers and spice, and it coddles the palate with a plethora of mineral-inflected, nutty notes. Balanced, vibrant with acidity, excitingly full-bodied, this ’11 is a delicious, almost feral foray into natural winemaking, and it’s a bottle that’s even more special for being made by Giampiero Bea in concert with a working order of nuns. This skin-contact white, also known as an orange wine, is vinified like a red, so the Trebbiano, Malvasia, and Verdicchio grapes ferment on the lees for about two weeks. The resulting wine is unusual, complex, layered and struck with minerality. Fewer than 350 cases produced each year.
