Locorotondo

Made from Verdeca e Bianco d’Alessano grapes grown around the town of Locorotondo in the Murgia and the towns of Cisternino and Fasano, picked by hand when just ripe and pressed gently to produce a small quantity of free-run must, which is subjected to alcoholic fermentation for 10-12 days at a controlled temperature of 15-16°C and then kept in the cellar at a controlled temperature with batonnage. Light straw yellow in colour, with a characteristic delicate fragrance of flowers and white fruit.
