All we can say is, wow! What a fascinating and delicious smelling nose. This orange wine has lots of dried fruits, orange peel, dried apricot, honey and some minerality too. At Azienda Argricola Casale, the walls date back to the year 1000 - even the wine cellars. The current owner of the winery, Antonio Giglioli, believes in sustainable farming, using organic and biodynamic methods to make his wines.

The grape in this wine, trebbiano, is a white wine grape that's incredibly popular in Italy. In France, it's called ugni blanc and is most famously the grape in cognac. Once picked, the trebbiano grapes are pressed for their juices but left with the skins on for four weeks - this is usually only done when making red wines. This skin contact gives orange wine its colour, tannin and flavour. Hence why this wine is bright orange, has a little tannin and is packed full of flavour.
