2016 La Stoppa “Ageno” Malvasia, Ortrugo, TrebbianoRegular price $76.00
Emilia Romagna is a wine region in northern Italy, where top Italian products such as Parmigiano Reggiano cheese and Parma ham come from. The winemakers at La Stoppa aim to make a wine that matches the rich gastronomy of the region, deciding on a blend of white grapes from Toscano (Tuscany), co-fermenting Malvasia, Ortrugo, and Trebbiano, and using skin contact.
Bright orange color with pungent aromas of lemon, lime, orange peel, mandarin and floral notes on the nose, this wine has attractive and intense flavors of orange and spices, plus a crispy texture with a long finish. A wine that asks for food, why not enjoy Ageno with a cheese platter?
