LA STOPPA - AGENO 2010
Grape Variety: Malvasia, Trebbiano, Ortrugo
Region: Emilia-Romagna, Northern Italy
Bottle Size: 750mlTasting Notes: La Stoppa Ageno is one of the benchmark Italian orange wines which are distinctive skin contact white wines. The grapes are macerated on the skins with native yeasts for thirty days and the wine is matured half in stainless steel and half in French barriques. It is orange/bronze colour with an amazing nose of tea, peaches, pears, sweet apricots and spice. On the palate there's lovely rich ripe peach fruit and also a tannic structure but it is also juicy with honey and floral notes. This extremely complex wine has a dry finish.
