Product reviews
Aromas of sunsoaked strawberry leaf and nectarine eau-de-vie. The palate is redolent of honeycomb, waxy and bittersweet with essential oils of orange and bergamot driftin by with melon crush and crab apple. Like nothing you've ever drunk before we'll wager. Layer upon layer of ever-evolving tones and nuances that are impossible to pin down. The fantastically named Winorang is made from 50 year old Pinot Grigio vines, ideally situated on Cormons Ponca soil. Macerated on the skins in marble vats for 72 hours before a long slow ferment and lees aging of around 9 months. Bottled without fining, filtration or any additions.

Using raw material from nearby Aurisina on the coast Manuele has developed the world's first marble tank fermentation system. Marble is hygienic, breathable, inert and imperceptible with respect to the liquid contained in it, it protects the vinification and ripening of wine from bacterial contamination, intrusion of wood components and roasting of stalks. The tanks walls are modular allowing each container volume to be altered in respect of its contents and dismantled for cleaning and moving.

CASTEL SAN MAURO is located on the Italian north-eastern hills embracing Gorizia, known as Collio. It extends over an area of 25 hectares of which 6.5 are with vines. The south-facing land, among the woods of Mount Sabotino and the meadows that slope down towards the Isonzo River, its type consisting of marl and sandstone (Ponca) are the conditions that favor the cultivation of the vine since ancient times. From the mid Twentieth Century the farm belongs to the family of the current owner, Manuele Mauri. In 1958, Manuele's Grandfather Gilberto began renovating the old villa and the old vineyards. Since taking over Manuele has moved to organic and biodynamic farming practises, all to limit the intervention. The 60 year old vines are also provdign the stock for the selection of new plants
