ABOUT THE PRODUCER
About 9 is Enough Orange Wine Puglia
9 is Enough Orange Wine Puglia is based on Pinot Grigio. The fruit was hand-harvested, entirely destemmed but not crushed, and fermented without any additions in open-top stainless steel fermenters. For a little more than a week, the wine had a gentle hand plunging to keep the cap wet and extract the lightest amount of tannin as possible. The wine was then pressed directly to stainless-steel tanks to finish fermentation and for maturation. After six months the wine was bottled without fining or filtration and just a small addition of sulfur. The aroma is very fresh with balanced acidity. It is an orange wine reminiscent of exotic smell; on the palate, the salinity blends with the aftertaste of mango. Vibrant, joyful, extremely easy with a little grip on the palate and a refreshing salinity.
About 9 is Enough
9 is Enough is the culmination of the relatively short time Valentina has learned the nuance of her vineyard and the unique micro-sites within it. The major difference between the ‘9 is Enough’ wines and ‘Calcarius’ is the former comes from grapes grown on ‘brown’ soils while the latter is from the ‘white’ soils of her vineyard. Furthermore from a winemaking/style perspective ‘9 is Enough’ showcases the beauty of the grapes at a very low alcohol level, or 9% is enough (sub-10% across the line). She has initially set out to make them non-vintage wines, leaving herself the creative flexibility to blend across multiple vintages for unique profiles or for further experimentation in the cellar that might require the wine to be labeled non-vintage.
