Description

La Stoppa Ageno

La Stoppa Ageno is one of the benchmark Italian orange wines which are distinctive skin contact white wines.

La Stoppa Ageno is orange/bronze colour with an amazing nose of tea, peaches, pears, sweet apricots and spice.

On the palate La Stoppa Ageno has a lovely rich ripe peach fruit and also a tannic structure but it is also juicy with honey and floral notes. This extremely complex wine has a dry finish.

The La Stoppa Ageno grapes are macerated on the skins with native yeasts for thirty days and the wine is matured half in stainless steel and half in French barriques.

La Stoppa is an ancient estate with vineyards stretching along the Trebbiola valley, not far from the river Trebbia, in the province of Piacenza.

The estate extends over 52 hectares, 30 of which are planted with vines and dominated over by an elegant medieval tower.

Over a century ago, the estate‘s previous owner planted French varieties, producing both wines of significance, as well as others of curiosity through the addition of Italian styles: Bordeaux, White Bordeaux and Pinot Noir.

In 1973 the estate was acquired by the Pantaleoni family who, within a short space of time, had invested in and restructured the vineyards, as well as renewing the cellar.

Today the company is headed by Elena Pantaleoni, with the assistance of winemaker Giulio Armani.

The naturally low yields (due to the average age of the vines and poor soil ) together with the intrinsic quality of the grapes, have made possible the creation of wonderfully characteristic wines, which reflect their vineyards of origin and speak for themselves without the need for excessive reworking in the cellar.

This does not mean that no use is made of modern technology or small barrels. On the contrary. However, these serve to accompany the wine towards its full maturity rather than to falsely modify it in any way.

Today La Stoppa produces a limited number of wines: some derived from the local varieties – Malvasia, Barbera and Bonarda, others from historically introduced varieties of French origin such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Pinot Noir.

The objective is to create modern wines without betraying the history and expression of the territory, manifesting themselves through the subtle tones and unique character of the wines produced. La Stoppa Ageno is a tangible representation of this particular approach.

Peter Lehmann Margaret Semillon 2013

While bottle ageing in the Tanunda cellars, the wine has developed an attractive vibrant green/gold colour. The bouquet shows hints of lemon flower together with some waxy, honeyed development so typical of great, aged Semillon. The grapes were picked early in the season to retain more natural acidity and the palate is dry with a zesty finish.
