Pinot Grigio, Lunaria 'Ramoro'
This Pinot Grigio is fermented on the grapes’ skins and therefore comes out a coppery-orange in color like a rosé, resulting in a rich palate texture that must be experienced to be believed.
The nose is intense, floral with yellow fruits, hints of ethereal; on the palate is fresh, intense and fruity.
The grapes are sent to the pneumatic press for soft crushing, then the must is fermented with the skins and with their indigenous yeasts at low temperature (55/57° F) in stainless steel tanks, for about 30 days. Aged in stainless steel tanks on fine lees, followed by ageing in bottle.
Cantina Orsogna is a (very) progressive cooperative of thirty one growers in Italy’s central province of Abruzzo. The company was one of the first of its kind to move to 100% organic farming back in 2002, and they are the largest Biodynamic wine producer in Italy, having been certified by Demeter since 2005. We are currently working with their fruit-forward, sometimes experimental “Lunaria” line which showcases single varietal bottlings from grapes well-suited to the climate of the coastal Terre di Chieti subregion.
