I LOVE MONSTERS
Le Marche, IT
The very latest project from Tenuta di Tavignano is the world’s first Verdicchio Pet Nat and orange Verdicchio, both under the new ‘I Love Monsters’ label, made in tiny quantities with only tiny sulphur additions.
Verdicchio seems to have found a genuine home in orange wine, because the skin contact brings out even more of the grape’s natural perfume as well as turning up the salty, phenolic focus that’s so unique about Verdicchio. The sparkling Pet Nat combines little portions of Malvasia and Sangiovese (en blanc) with old-vine Verdicchio to craft a delicious and very fine sparkler, mineral but at the same time textured up and creamy
They’re both set to be future classics.
