This is an orange wine.  It is a reference to the fact that this wine is fermented with skin contact and not a direct reference to the color.  The exact hue may vary from fairly pale to a deep amber.

Pure, complex aromas of tangerine peel and wildflowers on the nose. Round yet fresh on the palate, with spicy/savory notes. The finish is long and mouthwatering, with a pleasant touch of tannic grip and a light, saline character

Excellent with lighter fare as an aperitif, it will stand up to a hearty Cobb salad and boldly flavored dishes such as moussaka and biryani. Also an ideal pairing with grilled seafood or savory cheese, like feta, halloumi, and more.

Bel A Ciao Description

A mouthwatering skin contact wine made from golden-skinned Bordeaux grape, sémillon. Bel a Ciao is the latest project from “revolutionary” winemaker Olivier Cazenave, a Libourne native who can’t help himself when it comes to breaking the rules and flipping pre-conceived notions of Bordeaux upside-down. It is the desire to break the rules that sets Bel A Ciao apart. Bel A Ciao is named after a revolutionary folk song of the same tune. This vintage is 100% Sémillon and certified organic by the Agriculture-Biologique (AB) in France.

From a 25 acre parcel in Le Fleix (Dordogne, on the border of the Gironde, about 5km northeast of St. Foy). Clay/limestone soils. Vines average 25 years in age.

Macerated 3 weeks on the skins and fermented at 68°F in stainless steel tanks. Matured 6 months on the fine lees in concrete tanks.
