TERRITORY: The Salento region is identified by three climatic elements: the sun, the architect that creates generous degrees of sugar, the sea, responsible for the minerality of the wines, and the wind that makes this area naturally free of disease and particularly suitable for the production of “natural” wines. Characterized by extensive flat areas and modest hilly reliefs, the Salento region is geologically constituted by a calcareous structure of medium texture.
VARIETY INFORMATION: Fiano, also known by the name Apiano, is an ancient southern vine whose cultivation dates back to Roman times. The name derives from the Latin word Apianus (bee) for the sweetness of its berries and as such, it is much appreciated by bees.
AROMAS: Hints of white flowers, exotic fruit and honey.
PALATE: Fresh and mineral. Notes of yellow fruit, citrus and hazelnut. It has a refined and persistent finish.
VINIFICATION: Soft pressed to preserve the fruity and floral taste.
After a cold cryomaceration, slow fermentation at a low temperature takes place for about two weeks in order to best express its distinctol- factory notes. After three months resting in steel, the wine is bottled.
