Aromano is the special Orange wine from the Bolfan winery. It is a gourmet wine made of 95% Pinot Gris and 5% Traminac. The wine has extensive gastronomic options.
Grape: 95% Pinot Sivi (Gris), 5% Traminac (Gewürztraminer)
Content: 0.75 l
Taste: The wine has intense notes of overripe apricot with a special spiciness. The wine is full-bodied but at the same time also soft thanks to the aging in oak barrels and the beautiful acids. The skin of the grapes is also fermented (which gives the amber color) therefore the wine has very pleasant soft tannins.
Serve with: Aromano has many gastronomic options. For example, the wine pairs well with dishes such as turkey with zucchini and smoked cheese, pork medallions fried with baked smoked cheese, chicken livers in bacon with mushroom cream sauce, but also garlic shrimp and even spicy dishes. With bue cheese it becomes very buttery.
Serving temperature: 10-12 degrees Celsius
Alcohol percentage: 14,5%
Vinification: The Pinot Sivi and the Traminac have had a separate fermentation process in stainless steel tanks. The maceration lasted 15 days, during which the skins were not separated from the must, which resulted in the amber color of the wine. The blend is then made in large wooden barrels of used Slavonian oak. The wine was then aged in these barrels for 24 months
Specifics: Wijnhuis Bolfan is eco-certified. The wine is suitable for vegans.
The soil on which the grapes grow is a bit gritty with lots of marlstone limestone and some clay. It is very mineral-rich so that the wines have a mineral salty taste.
