Zibibbo Secco 'Orange' Abbazia San Giorgio 2020

"Orange" by Abbazia San Giorgio is a white wine macerated for 15 days on the skins, coming from grapes of Zibibbo cultivated on the black earth of Pantelleria with ancient ancestral methods. It has a torbate orange robe and Pantelleria perfume: sweet hints of apricot, citrus peel, dried fruit and honey are intertwined with salty and mineral tones. The sunny and Mediterranean freshness, the refined flavor and the caressing tannin emphasize the sip with rhythm and vitality. Wine made with old style artisanal methods

When to open
To enjoy an artisanal wine at its best, we recommend you to let it 'breathe' at least 15-30 minutes before serving and, if necessary, to filter it to remove every possible deposit
Glass

Perfect for young and medium bodied orange wines which require a minimum oxygenation to open. The opening, slightly tighter than the body of the glass, favors the concentration of aromas towards the nose, enhancing the perception of aromas and limiting the dispersion
