From the silver sea of olive trees, the white stones at noon, the bright secrets woven into lace, and languidly inviting Baroque palaces, comes Edda Bianco, a “female” wine, with a mineral, timeless temperament, an ineffable fruit in a land of charm. Predominantly Chardonnay with native white grape varieties from San Marzano, Salento, Puglia at about 100 meters above sea level. The grapes are destemmed and left in cryomaceration for a few hours. The next phase is the gentle pressing of the marc followed by static cold decanting so that it happens naturally. The alcoholic fermentation takes place on yeasts in French oak barriques for 4 months, with weekly bâtonnage. A straw yellow colour with golden reflections; mellow citrus fruits and delicate vanilla floral notes fill the nose. To the taste it is generous in its elegance, fresh, delicate and mineral.
