An Italian white wine produced for the defunct "Jamie Oliver's Italian" restaurant chain.
This is a blend of two indigenous grapes from the region of Basilicata in the toe of Italy - 60% Greco (needless to say originally a Greek grape) and 40% Fiano.
The wine was produced by Vigneti del Vulture one of the best winemakers in Basilicata from grapes grown on low trained vines. The vineyards are situated on the volcanic slopes of Mount Vulture at altitudes of up to 800 metres. The long slow growing season, due to the high altitude of the vineyards, ensures that Vulture is one of the last areas in Italy to harvest, so late ripening native grapes such as Greco and Fiano are ideally suited to the poor soils of this zone.
The grapes were chilled on arrival at the winery, gently crushed and fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks at 10°C. All handling of the juice is done in an oxygen free environment in order to preserve the fresh aroma of this wine. The wine was then aged in stainless steel tanks on its lees before the final blending by winemaker Dennis Verdecchia.
