Notes:

 

Nice Orange wine from Italy. Aromartic, on the palate notes of lemon peel, grapefruit, apricot, melon, pear. 68-year-old vines, clay-limestone rich in ‘schletro,’ fine gravel. 10 day maceration on the skins, fermentation with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel, maturation in steel and wood barrels. Nice acid and a little bit of tannins. 
Santa Colomba was once the property of the Giovannelli, a noble Venetian family, who planted vines and established a natural park around their Villa San Fermo. Later, it was sold to a congregation of priests and turned into a convent, who still own it today. Gianfranco had known this hidden treasure of half-abandoned vines since childhood, waiting for the opportunity to restore them. The convent finally agreed and thus was born Santa Colomba, the only entity permitted to produce wines from this special place.
The two friends immediately set out to convert the entire production of wine to more sustainable methods of farming and cellar practices, in the firm belief that “working in a natural way in this extraordinary environment is a commitment we have made from the start, and a great responsibility we feel we have towards nature.”
