From the winemakers: "A bit Orange and a bit Tango. A game of long macerations and a dance based on improvisation, elegance and passion. A frontal embrace in which Trebbiano leads and Malvasia follows. Two amphorae of the first and two amphorae of the second, in harmony.

The grapes, manually harvested, are immediately but gently pressed and then fermented spontaneously (separately) in the clay vessels, without adding sulphites or anything else. A 7 months long skincontact gives character and depth. The minerality of Trebbiano is even more enhanced and the aromaticity of Malvasia completes its profile.

The two wines meet for the first time only before bottling, they show up quickly and they immediately start to dance."
