Aransat is Friulian slang for orange, and this fun, fresh, and funky orange wine comes from the area of Cormons, 12 kilometers from the Slovenian border. This family estate is female-run and covers a total of 18 hectares alongside Mount Quarin. The family focuses on farming indigenous varieties and is committed to natural winemaking. Farming practices are sustainable and operate as organically as possible. Grapes are de-stemmed and then natural fermentation occurs on the skins in stainless steel tanks at warmer temperatures. Post-fermentation maceration on skins lasts about 90 days. The wine is unfiltered and racked twice prior to bottling.
Tasting Notes: Medium-bodied, dry. Citrus and apricot on the nose with more stone fruit on the palate. Finishes with orange bitters, pine, and minerals.
Pairings: White meats, spicy dishes, spring vegetables, fresh tomatoes, hummus, fennel, zucchini, oysters, clams, lobster, crab, garlic prawns, and lightly seasoned white fish.
