White Gazza Ladra Fiano
Wine obtained by the soft pressing of 100% white Fiano grapes planted with a density of 5.000 plants per hectare, farmed using the single guyot system. The Fiano vine, famous for its vigour and strength and already successfully planted in Apulia, starting from the 2001 vintage is at the fi rst regional test in quality bottles. The high acidity, typical of this grape, allows the plants to overcome the summer in the Murge hills preserving completely its genetic endowment. This does not always happen with the others indigenous grapes. Intense yellow, with a persistent aroma of ripe citrus fruits, lemon jam, white fl owers, white fruit and caramel. Alcohol 13%, and elegant salinity which is well balanced with the structure and the body of this wine. The dry taste, the richness of the structure, and the intensity of the aroma make this wine almost unique in the panorama of white wines produced inside Apulia borders. It’s good with appetizers, perfect with summer Mediterranean dishes, particularly raw sea-food, calamari, cuttlefi sh, mussels, octopus and generally with fi sh. Drink it young, within three years after vintage, at about 12°C. Uncork a few minutes before tasting.
