Region: Salento, IT
Notes: Verdeca is an indigenous Puglian grape variety. It is the "everyday" grape of the locals. Bright acidity yet quite neutral on aromatics, the variety thrives in the calcium-rich soils of Puglia. Nico has reinvented Verdeca and is making it the way his grandfather made it...with skin contact. 11 days of maceration before pressing. Natural fermentation in stainless steel and aged in stainless and cement tank. Roughly 3000 bottles produced annually.
