In a Nutshell
Ripe and fruity - a great summer drinker
Low temperature fermentation has retained the fresh, crisp and aromatic quality of the wine whilst still allowing its character to shine through. Perfumes of white flowers and white melon with mineral notes provide a backdrop to the full, ripe palate, and lift the finish. An elegant wine, with a lingering touch of honey.
Once arrived at the winery, grapes were carefully selected.To maintain the aromatic characters of Falanghina, the must was chilled immediately in order to achieve settling. The settled must was fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks at 12-14°C. The wine remained in stainless steel tanks until bottling, with no oak and no malolactic fermentation. Lees stirring took place to impart more flavour and body to the wine.The wine underwent cold stabilisation and filtration before bottling.
Vigneti del Salento
This is the Puglia venture of the Farnese group (responsible for Gran Sasso, Vesevo and Tufarello ). The wines were made at two wineries in the province of Taranto on the western flank of Salento. The style of the wines – fresh whites, soft and generous reds – will be familiar to those who buy their other wines, as winemaker Filippo Baccalaro is the driving force behind this new label.
