Pico Masieri Maule Garganega Skin Contact White, no added sulphites, natural white with short skin maceration: textured, aromatic and refined. Angiolino Maule doesn't really believe in 'orange wines', but by using limited skin contact and a bit of know-how, he produces deliciously textured whites, with aromas of wild herbs, honey, a touch of smoke, but underlined with freshness and approach-ability. The Pico is extremely elegant, made with carefully selected Garganega grapes in the Gambellara hills, left on the skins for 4-5 days, and then matured in large old barrels before being bottled without fining or filtration. It's a great entry into skin contact whites - refreshing and precise, with bags of minerality. Try it with a creamy pasta dish made with porcini mushrooms, or a big bowl of Paella.
