Orange wines are white wines left on their skins during fermentation for months, even years. Says Antonio Gianola of Houston's Catalan, "They drink more like reds because of their weight." A few to try:
2008 Cornelissen Munjebel Bianco 5
"The producer doesn't add sulfur, which makes this wine a wild child," Gianola says about the Sicilian bottling.
2005 Damijan Kaplja Bianco
Fermented in big ceramic amphora, this Friulian white blends varieties like Chardonnay with indigenous grapes.
