This orange treat serves a playful yet mature palate of sweet apricot and melons, followed by a slight tannic, leather minerality. 

White Trebbiano and Malvasia grapes are macerated on skins for 7 days in fibreglass, making an orange wine with no added sulphites, filtering or clarification of indigenous yeasts, creating the sincerest of natural wine vibes.  

Father and son Sergio and Paulo Bombetti are the latest family members from a lineage of over a century of wine and olive producers. Located just south-east of Rome, their two hectares of 40 year old vines are tended to purely by hand, and the grapes are continually treated with tenderness and respect throughout the fermentation process. Wines are also decanted and bottled in accordance with the lunar cycles.
