NASCIRI MASCERATO GRECO BIANCO 2019
FRICTION SUN ORANGE
LEFT OF CENTRE / 750
An intriguing short macerated orange wine made from Greco in Calabria. The wine has subtle grippy friction with orange blossom, stone fruit and a lovely 'wet earth' aroma. A gateway orange wine.
From the Producer: We have some 7 hectares of vineyards in open countryside that are always exposed to the sun and have a fantastic view of the sea.
The vineyards grow four different vines of which three have red grapes: Aglianico, Greco Nero and Nero Calabrese; and one has white grapes: Greco Bianco. All of the grapes are either typical of the local area, for example Greco Bianco and Greco Nero, or of the south of Italy.
As we do for the production of oil, we also follow the whole production cycle of our wine, from looking after the vines to harvesting the grapes (yes, the grapes all come from our land) and transforming the grapes into wine, and finally the bottling and labelling processes. We have our own wine cellar where we carry out all the necessary checks.
We won’t tire of repeating that the result of our wine depends solely and 100% on our grapes and our processing of them. We don’t add any preservatives or other substances that could adulterate it. Neither do we do anything to enhance the colour or the consistency of the product artificially.
Calabria is a region that has very different microclimates (such as sea and mountains) a short distance apart and this is typical of the area and very interesting to experience. Another thing is that we have sun almost all year round, which gives us a mild climate with winters that are not too cold. Thanks to this fact our countryside is nearly always green (except in August because the intense heat gives little opportunity for the vegetation to flourish) and there are often flowers even in winter.
