Tasting Notes

This is skin contact 'orange' wine.

"Vitovska is an indigenous grape specific to the Friulian region of Carso, a very rocky region that borders Slovenia. It is a natural cross between malvasia bianca lungo and prosecco. Benjamin and his wife Marisa Zidarich tend 8ha here in a naturalist, non-intervention vein. Green is their more youthful and approachable vitovska, from 4-10 year old vines grown on extremely rocky calcarious soils between 260-280m in altitude. After native ferment and a short time on the skins, this spent 13 months in old Slovenian oak before being bottled unfined and unfiltered. Piercing, potent, herbal orange, wild lemon, with light pink florals scenting. There's a light skin contact grip on the lean, greyhound sleek palate, finishing with a saline rinse. Here the skin contact is finessed and well integrated into this fresh, bright, lively wine. Smashable, seriously, now." - Treve Ring (Gismondi on Wine)


Critical Praise

91 points Michael Godel (Wine Align)

"The grape is vivotska, rare for Venezia-Giulia and originating in Slovenia where this skin-contact style is not just prevalent but the complete norm. The border area is quite close to Trieste in this particular case and this is a particular wine. Orange zest, verdancy in herbs and resins, lemon preserve and a wild botanical tisane don’t even do justice to how this coats the mouth. Wild, carefree and undeterred, so naturally curated and plenty of nature-driven length"
