05035 Bianco Umbria IGP - 2019
05035 Bianco from Trebbiano Spoletino grapes. This variety was almost extinct but managed to be rescued thanks to the passion of the local winemakers in the 2000s. The wines tend to be rich and aromatic with good acidity and show an easy-drinking style of white wine, with clean and fresh character.
Leonardo Bussoletti is a winemaker from the city of Narni. Narni is a historical city located in the Umbria region, right in the heart of Italy. Bussoletti is focused on bringing on the winemaking tradition of the area. In his portfolio, we find wines made with varieties such as Grechetto and Trebbiano Spoletino for the whites, while the reds only from the Ciliegiolo, another autochthonous grape of the region. Leonardo is the pioneer in producing Ciliegiolo wines, traditionally also used in the production of Chianti, but Bussoletti having recognized the potential of this grape he decided instead to produce mono-varietal wines. Thanks to him, Ciliegiolo is now more known around the world.
Star bright yellow straw color. Youthful profile on the nose with lemon zest, green apple, and fresh white bread notes. Vibrant acidity on the palate with lemon juice character and salty finish.
The vinification occurs in stainless steel vessels only, with delicate aging on the lees before bottling.
