"Leukò" Vino Bianco, A'vita (2020) - Calabria
Grapes: Greco Bianco & Gaglioppo (red grape vinifies in white).
‘A Vita winery is located on the arch of Italy’s boot tip, nestled between the Ionian Sea and the Sila mountains; their production is small, a total of 2,000 cases a year.The vineyards are certified organic, and no fertilizer is used.
The Greco Bianco is macerated for a few hours and the Gaglioppo is vinified white after direct pressing. The co-fermentation occurs spontaneously in stainless steel and ageing lasts 8 months in a tank on the lees.
This wine has a strong Mediterranean soul: juicy gentle and vibrant enriched by a complex bouquet of citrus fruits and saltiness as the vineyard are near the sea and at only 10 metres above the sea level.
