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: Verdeca is a white grape variety native to Puglia, its greenish shade is suggested in its name. An elegant variety with great vigour.
AROMAS: Fruity and floral with hints of green apple, white flowers and elderberry.
PALATE: Fruity and citrusy with elegant aromatic notes, there is a marked minerality and sapidity.
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 distinct olfactory notes. After three months resting in steel, the wine is bottled.
