Amastuola Bialento Bianco (750ml)
Soft CheeseGrilled FishRisotto
Amastuola is situated on a plateau, 210 meters above sea level, near Crispiano in the Puglia region of Southwest Italy. Its surrounded by about 170 ha of land, mostly planted in vineyards with olive trees and stone walls. The farm itself has been an agricultural center since the fifteenth century, as evidenced by decades of archaeological investigations carried out on its land. The vineyards benefit from a microclimate that favours organic farming and the precious minerals and nutrients of the terroir give the wines a very special aroma. The vineyard was designed by Fernando Caruncho, a landscape architect. Amastuola wine is 100% EU Certified Organic from 2012.
On the nose, floral aromas reminiscent of Muscat- delicate but jumping out of the glass. On the palate, those floral notes carry through with added pear, citrus, and a mixture of herbs- thyme, sage, rosemary. Use this as an aperitif or pair with raw seafood, grilled fish, various risotto dishes, or a number of soft and hard cheese.
Made from 75% Malvasia and 25% Fiano, the grapes harvested at night to preserve freshness; destemmed, gently pressed, and fermented in stainless steel. The wine rests for a period in stainless steel tanks and undergoes light micro-oxygenation.
