Bianco Basilicata IGT 2018

Re Manfredi

Terroir: Re Manfredi’s Bianco Basilicata is a blend of Muller Thurgau and Traminer raised on hillside vineyards at an elevation of 1000 feet. The densely planted vines sit in well drained soils of volcanic soil at a south/ southeast exposure, soaking up the heat of the Mediterranean sun to achieve optimum ripeness.

Vinification: Following a hand harvest, grapes are sorted and cold macerated for 48 hours followed by six months of aging in stainless steel vats. The wine is blended and bottled in the spring after a light filtration.

    "An unusual blend for Southern Italy, the Re Manfredi 2018 Bianco is a mix of Müller Thurgau and Traminer. As is to be expected, the bouquet is sweet-smelling and floral with candied orange peel, acacia honey, sun-dried apricot and Indian jasmine. In the mouth, this white wine is waxy and slightly creamy, ending with a mild touch of sweet softness. Drink this wine within the next 18 months."
