"The 2010 Concabianco shows good depth in its white peaches, apricots, ash and flowers. A focused, tightly wound finish frames the fruit nicely. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2013." (06/11)

Product Description:

Wine:
"This fragrant and intense wine has a right vein of acidity and has hints of ripe fruit and almond flavor, a fair balance between the two varieties of the characters are very different: the generous 'falanghina' and the aristocratic 'pallagrello white'."

"Vines grown to 'guyot', with a maximum yield of 75/80 q.li / h, the grapes are hand picked in late September and turned into wine in a yield of about 65%. Separate vinification in temperature controlled stainless steel without maceration, left on the 'lees' for a minimum of two months, then natural malolactic fermentation and then blended and left to mature in steel for at least three months after bottling is not commercialized a month and a half." - Winery

Poderi Foglia:
"The northern tip of the Campania is the extreme rural 'Terre di Lavoro' region. Considered a fortunate location, this fertile and sunny land is generous and offers a plentiful harvest. Around the village of Conca the Galluccio DOC is developing, bringing back to life some of the best vineyards known to the Romans. Here the owners of Vestini Campagano have decided to make a home to their research into campania varieties and identified the Galluccio as the most precious among all Campania winegrowing regions."

"This recently acquired land has been replanted to 4 Campania varieties by the Barletta family, equipped by a very functional modern cellar and staffed with a young enthusiastic team under the guidance of Luigi and Amadeo Barletta." - Importer
