By day, Giulio Armani makes wine at La Stoppa, and in the afternoons, he retreats to Denavolo-- named after the mountain the vineyards are on-- to experiment and ask life's big questions. We are huge fans of his wines and feel lucky we get to share them with you! This is his entry-level orange-- a blend of short skin contact and direct press-- that's bursting with apricot, honeysuckle, and jasmine notes, and a long citrusy finish.
We love it with… 🍤🐟🍣

Vinification: Organic farming. The grapes are hand-harvested in early September, undergo intensive vineyard sorting, de-stemming and half of the harvest spends five days on the skins while the other half is directly pressed. Spontaneous fermentation takes place in stainless steel and lasts 15 days without temperature control. The wine spends approximately eight months on lees without stirring. Bottled unfined, unfiltered, no SO2.
