Domo Arigato - Mr. Romato
With notes of Asian pears and apricot preserves sprinkled with white pepper, this orange wine is 100% Pinot Gris from sustainably farmed premier Edna Valley vineyards in central California.
When Pinot Grigio grapes are crushed and the skins are allowed to spend time with the juice, a teasing, tactile texture and coppery hue results in a distinct wine style called ramato. It comes from the word ‘rame’ which means ‘copper’ in Italian.
Depending on the fermentation, the wine sits on skins anywhere from 30 to 60 days. Pressed when the tannin is soft, then, the wine is pressed off the skins and settled in stainless steel tanks for 24 hours, before being racked down to neutral French oak and Acacia barrels for aging.
Delicious with oysters, porchetta sandwiches, charcuterie, and fire pits.
