2016 Malvasia, Ortrugo 'Dinavolino L16NO''Denavolo
Denavolo is the personal estate of La Stoppa winemaker Giulio Armani. The estate is located in Travo, 11km south of La Stoppa and sits at elevation of 500 metres. The biodynamic vineyard is planted to Malvasia di Candia, Ortuga, Marsanne and an old unidentified local variety. Giulio Armani has created the estate in 2005, by producing first orange wines from a 32 years old vineyard (Debe)
The 2016 spent 10months on skins like the Ageno from La Stoppa but the blend of equal parts of the vineyard varieties results is a decidedly different style to La Stoppa. The Dinavolo is more savoury, with more tannic bite but just as spellbinding and complex.
