One of the latest additions to the world of orange wine is the Baccabianca from Tenuta Grillo. Made by a husband and wife team, they use only organically-grown Cortese grapes (normally used to produce Gavi di Gavi) from low yielding vines. The juice is then left to macerate with the skins for 45 days to create an unusual wine that combines an intense fruity flavour with spice and a touch of tannins.

Producer

Guido Zampaglione

Guido Zampaglione comes from Campania, Southern Italy. He makes a Fiano down there but seven years ago he bought this property because he really wanted to produce wines that could age. Here his major commitment is in the vineyard which means paying daily attention to every change as far as the vineyard and the climate are concerned. At the winery the Cortese goes through long skin maceration (30/40 days) which results in great ageing potential and lots of elegant complexity too.
