Tasting Notes

Ageno is made from Malvasia di Candia, Ortuga and Trebbiano fermented on skins for 10 months. An intense and rich orange wine with an incredible perfume, powerful flavour and prominant tannin. Loves food like pork. - Chris L

Natural + Orange in a white wine naturally brings to mind oxidative tastes like dry/fino sherry. Sure, but many have more - like here is a beautiful mouthful of sweet apricot fruit before the full drying tannin hit. So, it’s fruity and oxidative - and oh so moorish. - Michael L

The natural wines of La Stoppa are amongst the most sought after in Italy. Guided by the intelligent and passionate owner Elena Pantaleoni and Renaissanceman, winemaker Guilio Armani the small family owned estate which is located in the Trebbiola valley, not far from the river Trebbia, in the province of Piacenza. The estate practices organic viticulture with only copper and sulphur treatments used in the vineyard. The vines are guyot trained and are planted at a density of 6000 vines per hectare producing incredibly low yields. The vineyard is planted to the local varieties Malvasia di Candia, Ortuga, Trebbiano, Bonarda, Barbera and also small parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot which were introduced a over hundred years ago by the French. All of the 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. - Importer Note
