Produttori Di Manduria Alice Verdeca
In the heel of Italy, Manduria is considered the birth place of the native Primitivo grape, and was officially recognised as such in the 1970s when a DOC was created for the region.
As well as making high quality examples of Puglia’s most famous vinous export, the co-operative is well versed in producing fascinating whites from Fiano and Verdeca. This rare variety of native grape is picked from 15 to 20 year old espalier trained vines in the middle of September. The nose shows aromatic white flowers mixed with citrus notes as well as pear and pineapple. Dry on the palate this is fresh and mineral like.
Incredible with baked pastries, croissant, but anything with acidity/ lemon flavours.
