When oranges wines are a dime a dozen, it is a special moment to drink one as epic as this. Golden brown and translucent. Very sherry-like against the light. There definitely is a sharp acidity but kept in check by aromas of dark fruit, honeyed tea, and an intriguing incense-like note. Taste is smooth and rich with citrus fruits, dried appricot, and a touch of sweetness. Medium-length finish and there is definitely some lingering tannin. This is a skin-contact wine to contemplate that keeps on giving. Very food-friendly, too.

So good. Deep orange/amber in the glass. Didn’t take notes but remember lots of va balanced by a complex bouquet with orange peel and many other wonderful aromatics. Very full texture and it all works together wonderfully.

A revelation. Had the 2012 at Have & Meyer a few years ago and thought the food and place colored my judgment. Enjoying this at home confirmed my bias this is one of the best orange wines from Italy.

A highly unusual white from Emilia. Hints of dill, very grapey

Orange wine. Very specific palate. Not a sipping for a long time wine.

Outrageous. Honey, hay, apricots, wet leaves. Lovely structure. One of my favorite things to drink

Opened up after thirty min to an hour and evolved subsequently. Lots of dried fruit. Burnt orange and orange marmalade. Tastes like it belongs on a danish.

Orange-flavored wine. One of the best orange wines I have had, with a nose and palette combining oranges and flowers. The citrus attack ends with a strong acidic finish. Many people will hate this wine if they don’t like orange wine, but this is one of the best examples of this style.

I have had a few orange wines and this has been the most interesting. Flowers and citrus are prominent. This is a big wine with gorgeous legs in the glass. Delicious.
