Staff Pick Notes

Artizani is a joint venture of 3 business school buddies that decided to follow a more fulfilling path. They've been making wine since 2015 and have shown a modern, natural approach to Georgian wine making. Stainless steel has replaced Qvevri as the vessel for fermentation and aging. No sulfites, no filtration, and organic farming is central to their wines. The Orange Affair is a blend of Rkatsiteli and Mtsvane that has macerated on the skins. Stainless steel has allowed the wine to retain its fresh fruity and floral aromas. Its cloudy, copper-gold complexion is proudly displayed in its non tinted bottle. The palate will show peachy fruit, baking spice, and dried herbs with medium tannins. Bright acidity keeps the wine lively on the palate. Try with a plate of pasta and prosciutto and peas.
