The Trebbiano in Paolo Bea’s Arboreus see extended skin contact and are joined in the vat by semi-dried grapes of the same variety. The finished wine is spectacular. Complex, deep, polished. Beautiful copper orange color with mile deep aromas of apricots, peach, orange, and vanilla bourbon. The texture is surreal and nonlinear. At first it’s dense and rich but then quickly slips into a medium tannic acidic body. Flavors of sweet honeyed orange, subtle notes of vanilla spice, and creme brûlée stick around for a long welcomed while.
Start this at cellar temp and drink slowly as it warms. Where so many orange wines are a novelty, this is an expertly assembled wine of purpose. — 8 days ago
1/3 of wines we put up against homemade pizza night. Great to try Spoletino (Trebbiano). Have heard positive mention of this Umbrian producer, especially on the red side of things, as this was my first foray into these wines. Textural, high-toned acid (think grapefruit), but not without a salty / savory kick on the nose. At one point I was certain I had my nose in “hot dog water”, with how savory this white was showing itself. — 25 days ago
Протекшая пробка. Заметно редуктивно, черный хлеб, спички, подсохший мёд, айва, жёлтый грейпфрут, сухой персик, подсолнечное масло, соленая карамель. Полное тело со спокойной кислотностью. Объемно, выразительно, интересно, с собственным характером. Вполне живо и уверенно, с всё ещё прочной структурой и только начинающими смазываться щедрыми деталями. — 2 days ago
Extra fruity for an orange wine. Not too fermented tasting. One of the better orange wines I've had — 12 days ago
Lemony, salty, super unique for $15! For listening to Beach Boys’ Pet Sounds on a porch, beach, farm, generally anywhere with sun. — 19 days ago
Well balanced wine with notes of stone fruit and floral bouquet. Medium bodied wine that gives it some substance. — 8 days ago
