Petracavallo Bianco d'Alessano, round, soft and a mellow ripeness
Bianco D’Alessano is a native grape to Puglia known to withstand the very hot, arid conditions and is now seeing success in California and Australia after nearly going extinct. Vito wanted to really showcase the aromatic qualities of the grape so it sees a short four day maceration on the skins in stainless steel—giving the wine a beautiful, shiny, amber-gold color. The nose has nuances of apricots, bitter orange peel, green apples, and white flowers with dynamic acidity and fresh tannins. A great showcase of this native grape that reminds us a bit of some skin contact Rieslings.
