Cevico - Borgo dei Trulli Ficheto Bianco 2022 750ml
2022 Bianco Puglia IGP - Fiano, Malvasia, Sauvignon blend
All three varietals are carefully selected from low-yielding vineyards located on our Estate the Masseria Borgo dei Trulli, in the commune of Sava, in the province of Taranto, southern Puglia. The vineyards lie in a particular area called “Pasano”, approximately 6 km from the winery.
Each varietal is vinified separately. After a delicate de-stemming, the grapes are not pressed, but left to macerate on their skins for approximately 24 hours at 10°C to increase extraction of the delicate aromas.
The grapes are then gently pressed and approximately 60% of the clarified must is placed in stainless steel fermentation tanks. Fermentation is carried out using selected yeasts at a controlled temperature of 16°C and lasts approximately 10 days.
The remaining 40% is placed in new French barriques along with selected yeasts, for barrel fermentation. It will then remain in the barriques for an extra 5 months on its lees to extract maximum aromas.
Pale yellow in colour, the wine displays aromas of rich tropical fruit with a hint of vanilla. On the palate it is subtle and soft, with an elegant and complex citrus acidity and a long and lingering finish.
