Sergio and Thea were revolutionaries. A revolution that started in the vineyard (one of the first to have a high density of plants per hectare and which experiments with non-traditional vines and was one of the first Italian wine companies to make the move to organic viticulture) to continue in the cellars. Vittorio and David, their sons, continued the life's work after the death of their mother in 1989. Important collaborations developed with the best Italian oenologists: a young Francesco Spagnolli in the early 1980s, then Vittorio Fiore to Donato Lanati, whose teachings are fundamental were for Vittorio's growth. Since then, Tre Monti has experienced serious growth and is seen as one of the top companies in the Romagna region and this is also endorsed by the press and they were the first to receive the "three glasses" in Gamberro Rosso in 1997) followed by many high ratings ( The Thea 2008 was one of the first Sangiovese di Romagna to get 90/100 by Wine Spectator, Thea Passito, even 94/100 by Wine Enthusiast.
The Imola estate, where the winery is also located, is located in the beautiful area of the "Tre Monti" (Three Mountains), on the first hills of Imola, at an altitude of about 100 meters above sea level.
The Orange Wine is made 100% Albana - organically grown from the Vigna Bacchilega vineyard located on the Imola Estate which was planted in 1980
This is a so-called Orange wine and that means nothing more or less that it is a white wine made from white grapes but whose skins ripen with this wine and the skin contact has been no less than 95 days in Georgian amphora (Kvevri). The great thing about an Orange Wine like this one is that you can taste many red wine characteristics in this orange wine. The color of this "Orange" wine is deep and light orange. The scent is calm yet very complex, with notes of very ripe fruit, candied peel, honey and marzipan. In the lush taste, surprisingly much juice with a very rich aftertaste in which one encounters a lot of ripe stone fruit.
