Skin Contact
The Posca Bianca from Orsi Vigneto San Vito is a unique and complex wine from Emilia-Romagna made using a solera system, or "vino perpetuo," where a combination of Pignoletto, Alionza, Albana and Malvasia are vinified, some with skin maceration and some without, in a mix of oak, cement, stainless steel and anfora vessels. These are then added to the master tank as each new vintage is bottled, which contains many past vintages of Posca. Federico Orsi explains that he only uses around 10% of the tank for each vintage, so there's always a good amount of older wine with a fresh injection of young wine each year. The result is a fascinating white wine that's not quite in the "orange wine" spectrum but has lots of texture and depth, while retaining crisp acidity and prominent minerality. Fun fact - the name "Posca" refers to the daily ration of wine once given to Roman soldiers.
