Keep it natural, baby.
The G-Ray is a collaboration between Armonia and Andrea Marchetti, the organizer of two popular natural wine tastings in Italy, Back to the Wine and Vinessum. Their resulting wine is a pink, ramato skin contact Pinot Grigio that has a beautiful copper color. A pink-berried variety, when given skin contact it yields a rose-hued somewhat orange-like wine. 8 days on the skins, wild yeast fermentation, no filtering or fining and no sulfites are added. Mild tannins, generous berry notes with some lightly tropical tinges and a funky aroma.
Armonia creates three distinct lines of wine, POP, CRU, and LAB. The POP wines are the affordable, easy-drinking wines from Volcanic Soils a bit further away from the winery. These vines are all cultivated organically, and are in process of converting to biodynamics. The CRU line is from older vines from vineyards very close to the winery, with hillside exposure and calcerous/limestone soils, where Andrea tries to evoke the particularities of different isolated terroirs he cultivates. These vines are all cultivated biodynamically. And the LAB projects are those featuring collaborations with other natural winemakers and people important to the natural wine community across Italy.
