Coconar Orange 2020
Tastes like coconut cream and apricot tea. Easy going, interesting and fresh.
2 months skin maceration with spontaneous fermentation without temperature control. Aged in stainless steel. No filtering or fining and no added sulfur.
This is the passionate work of Alessia Bertaiola and her husband, Stefano, a 3rd generation winemaker whose family has had this property for more than 50 years. Alessia and Stefano represent the 4th generation to work the morainic hill of Monte Mamaor. They took over the property in 2007, and with Alessia's strong background in agricultural research and development, quickly converted each plot to biodynamic farming.
Alessia and Stefano are blessed with mostly big, thick, sturdy old vines roughly 60 to 70 years old, with some younger vines they have planted themselves. Vine training is what's known as a "Veronese double arch", a variation on the double guyot. They grow all autochthonous grapes with red varieties such as Corvina, Rossanella, Rondinella and Molinara; and white grapes like Fernanda, Moscato, Trebbianello, Trebbiano, Garganega and Tocai.
