Went upscale 🤠 during Christmas evening with this orange, near-extinct, full bodied Albana di Romagna Secco. Matched only with a frugal dinner of cold cuts, cheese and arugula this orange wine was spot-on! Much welcomed acidity for a 14,5% vol. Tropical fruits, some nutty aromas. A great discovery indeed!
