Basilicata Bianco IGT
Leucònoe is the significant name that Horace gives to the woman of the "carpe diem". A woman whose mind is clear, shiny, ready to seize the fleeting moment. No better name can be chosen for Aglianico vinified in white.
Grape variety: 100% Aglianico del Vulture.
Area of production: Montalbo vineyard.
Tasting Notes: light straw with a delicate shade of pink. The wine shows lovely herbaceous, lime, white peach notes and wet stone while the palate is rich but immediate, fresh and zesty, a perfect blend of savoury, salty and fruity character.
Alcohol Content: 12,00-13,00 %vol.
Winemaking: The grapes are hand harvested, whole bunches pressed and the free run juice cold settled naturally. After racking off juice lees a long cool fermentation takes place. The wine is then left on its light lees until the bottling time.
