Di Giovanna, Camurrìa Orange, 2019
IGP Terre Siciliane, Sicily, Italy
Camurria is Sicilian for ‘trouble’. Sicilian sun and wind, organic grapes and a long maceration on the skins, spontaneous fermentation in neutral barrels. So, Camurria Orange was born, a natural orange wine bottled unfined and unfiltered.
100% organically grown Grillo from the Paradiso vineyards in Contessa Entellina, 30-year-old vines located 450 meters a.s.l. The organic grapes are hand-harvested mid-September, destemmed and macerated on the skins for 5 days. Spontaneous fermentation, in stainless steel tank. Malolactic fermentation follows. Aged in stainless steel and neutral barrels, on the fine lees for 9 months before bottling, unfined and unfiltered.
Bright orange color with an expressive bouquet of wild flowers, almonds, marzipan and orange peel. Medium in body, savory with a beautiful acid core. Layers of citrus, stone fruits and sweet spice envelope.
