Oh Ageno... such a beautiful wine, and an absolute must for the orange-wine addicts who haven't yet tried.  The maceration here is long, around a month, leaving the tannins deep and complex. The fact this wine has been developing and getting to this special place since 2012 only adds to their profound integration in the wine; mouth-coating and tea-like. You could sit for hours picking out the different aromas in this wine - so much going on! Spices, citrus fruits, flowers... Some of the wine spends a bit of time in French barriques which lends an extraordinary opulence to the already generous body.  One of the very best, and our last few bottles of this vintage.
