Nascetta is an autochthonous Langa grape variety that a few wineries, including ours, have rediscovered in the past fifteen years.
Mèttola is now, the only Piedmont winery that produces Nascetta as 'orange wine'.
This practice involves the contact of white grape skins with must to extract as many anthocyanins as possible, molecules with a universally recognized antioxidant and antiaging function.
While starting from the same grapes, Mrs. Orange is a very different type of usual Langhe Doc Nascetta and a distant cousin of the "White" versions.
The primary attribute of this unique wine is its orange, almost coppery, color and its opalescent sheen.
It's a wine for connoisseurs: a no-compromise wine. Either you love it or you leave it. Best served slightly chilled.
Mrs. Orange is very structured, very mineral, mature, slightly bitter and savory. The aftertaste has pleasant citrus notes. It must be oxygenated, or left to breath to give it its best flavor.
Orange, Acacia, apple, grapefruit, tropical fruit and honey.
Combines well with: raw or cooked fish, crustaceans, white meat, fresh cheeses, or aperitifs.
