Perfect for intense and structured orange wines, which need oxygenation to open up and develop their intense and complex aromas. Alcoholic fermentation with indigenous yeasts without temperature control in acacia wood barrels.
Odyssea by Macchion dei Lupi is a white wine macerated on the skins from Suvereto, in the province of Livorno, and is made from 100% Ansonica grapes, refined for half the mass in steel tanks and the remainder in wooden barrels of‘acacia. It is amber to the eye and expresses to the nose warm and warm notes of fresh citrus and candied fruit, well-ripened yellow peaches and Mediterranean herbs, revealing a smooth and satisfying mouthfeel.
Macchion dei Lupi aim to produce wine by embracing the most natural form of agriculture possible, creating a true expression of the land it comes from. Winemaker Carlo Parentis’ love of the land impelled him to give up a banking career in Milan in 2003 and head to the hills of the Tuscan Maremma. The coastal hills of Suvereto, near Italy’s western coast, are known for their
rocky, mineral rich soils that produce low yielding grapes that pack a punch of flavour.
Carlo took on the challenge to nurture his three hectares into a biodynamic vineyard which proved to be an uphill battle that included drought, cash flow issues, and even a snakebite! With a commendable spirit Carlo stayed true to his craft. His passion and dedication are reflected in his wines and we are so excited to Include Carlo’s wines in our portfolio.
