Arancio is a very large 650-hectare estate owned by the Mezzacorona winery in Alto-Adige, in the far north of Italy. The winery is three kilometres from the eastern seashore, giving the wines an attractive lightness. A relatively new venture, this winery shows great promise. The range which includes both local and international varieties, are very well-made, and reasonably priced, too.
"Not as full-bodied as some Nero dAvola, but a lovely easy-drinking wine with clean, dark-berry fruits, no real tannins and with pretty good length too. A great everyday wine to drink alongside both red and white meats." -John Wilson, The Irish Times
