2014 La Stoppa Ageno White Blend

Emilia - Romagna, Italy

Giulio Armani from Denavolo is the head winemaker at La Stoppa so you're almost guaranteed an incredible wine experience. The orange hued Ageno is made from 35 year old Malvasia di Candia, Ortuga & Trebbiano vines and spends 10 months on skins giving a wine of incredible perfume and explosive flavour. All the grapes are harvested by hand and absolutely no additions with this high acid orange wines. Complex nose with orange peel and aniseed. Tight and crisp on the palate, bold and dry. Not your usual wine, but if you're into heavy skin contact wines, this is for you. Juicy, plump bit still a bit of grip. Stone fruits mostly, overripe mandarins and mango chutney.

About the maker

With Guilio Armani (Denavolo) at the helm, La Stoppa have made some of the most sought after natural wines in Italy.

The estate practices organic viticulture with only copper and sulphur treatments used. The vines are planted at a density of 6000 vines per hectare producing incredibly low yields with local varieties Malvasia di Candia, Ortrugo, Trebbiano, Bonarda, Barbera and also small parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Grapes are hand harvested and the winemaking process is in tune with the natural wine philosophy, no yeast additions, no fining, no filtration and sulphur only used at bottling for the young wines and Malvasia frizzante and none at all for the rest.
